Preparation of the "Encyclopædia Iranica," a multi-disciplinary reference work and research tool on Iranian history and civilization from prehistory to the present.

The Encyclopaedia Iranica (EI) is a major Iranian Studies reference work dedicated to the study of Iranian civilization in the Middle East, the Caucasus, Central Asia, and the Indian subcontinent. Intended for scholars, students and non-specialists, all entries are written with careful documentation and extensive bibliographies by leading scholars from many different countries. The EI is offered in a free digital edition ( and in print. Production and maintenance are coordinated and carried out by the staff of the Center for Iranian Studies at Columbia University. Thus far nearly 6,200 entries have been published, 700 of which are available only in the digital edition. During the two-year period of 1 July 2011 to 30 June 2013, the NEH grant will allow the project to continue with the production and development of the digital edition.
