One of the most ambitious and visible publishing projects to document the history of science, “The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein,” will go online with a digital publishing platform created by Providence-based Tizra.

“It’s a project being done by Princeton University Press and that’s what people will see, but behind the scenes, the Tizra platform is what they’re using to achieve their mission to disseminate the information,” said Tizra President and Chief Operating Officer Abe Dane.

Seven-year-old Tizra develops digital-publishing software used by publishers to create digital products, including e-books, periodicals, newsletters, research reports and educational materials. The company has earned a prestigious roster of clients, including Stanford University’s HighWire Press, Columbia University Press and MIT Press.

“We looked at a range of options and Tizra’s was the best fit,” said Princeton University Press Digital Production Manager Kenneth Reed. “We determined Tizra was the right partner because of its highly flexible, open and intuitive content-delivery approach and a strong reputation for reliability.”

About 14,000 papers selected from all phases of Einstein’s career are expected to fill nearly 30 volumes being published by Princeton University Press. Thirteen volumes have been printed so far, with the 14th due out in late 2014, said Reed.

The Einstein volumes will be available to the public and Tizra is bringing those volumes online.

The papers range from Einstein’s first work on the special and general theories of relativity and the origins of the quantum theory, to expressions of profound concern with civil liberties, education, Zionism, pacifism and disarmament.
