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

Encyclopaedia Iranica is a major interdisciplinary research tool in the humanities for scholars and students in Middle Eastern, Central Asian, Caucasian, and Indian studies, and for non-specialists interested in Persian culture and related fields. It is a vehicle for the publication of original research or synthesis. All of the articles are written with careful documentation and extensive bibliography by leading scholars from many different countries. Nearly 14 volumes have been published electronically and in print: a total of 92 fascicles plus 571 additional online articles. Focusing increasingly on the electronic edition (, we continue working on improving its accessibility and technical aspects as well as planning for enhancement of its search engine and metadata architecture. The present two-year application is for support to publish c. 375 articles per year of which 175-200 articles will be first posted online & 150-175 will be printed and then posted online.
