How long does it take to publish a document?

It takes roughly one year to edit a volume and submit it to the Press. No two documents are exactly the same but every document goes through a careful process of transcription, multiple verifications, annotation, checking of all citations, and a final review and indexing.  After submission, it takes approximately 9 to 12 months until bound volumes appear. By an agreement between Princeton University Press and the University of Virginia Press, there is an 18-month interval between a volume’s publication and its inclusion in the digital edition.
