Launched in 1998, the Newton Project is a non-profit organization that seeks to make all of Sir Isaac Newton's published and unpublished papers available to academic researchers and members of the general public. Currently headed by University of Oxford professor Rob Iliffe, the Newton Project team includes transcribers, coders, editors, and a translator who strive to make the work of the prolific physicist, mathematician, and astronomer accessible to readers. According to the About Us page, the project has published no fewer than 4 million words of diplomatically transcribed text, which represents about 90% of Newton's writings and 95% of his religious papers. Readers can browse these papers in The Texts section of this page, where they are organized by type (e.g. Correspondence, Notebook) and Subject (e.g. Mathematical, Religious, Scientific). Those interested in learning more about Newton and his writings will find extensive biographical information, including a list of all the books in his library, in the About Newton section.
