5. Report from the Peirce Edition Project
André de Tienne delivered the following report from the Peirce Edition Project:

There is a somber mood at the Peirce Edition Project compared to previous years. This has been one of the P E Ps most challenging years; André and his staff are working to rebuild things for better future.

Financially, the P E P can no longer count on funding from the N E H. The P E P applied for N E H funding two and three years ago. While the applications were highly reviewed and judged, they were rejected. (The Dewey and Royce editions have lately met the same fate with the N E H.) Seeking N E H funding is a lot of work and the returns are very small; it has become a waste of time for the P E P to apply.

Progress on volumes 7, 9 and 11 has not been great because of a shortage of crucial staff to do the work. The staff complement at I U P U I includes André, two staff members, and two graduate students. Publication in 2014 is unlikely; volume 9 may be published in 2015, if all goes well.

The P E P needs support, in particular philosophers to work on the manuscripts and to develop funding lines for this work.

An additional challenge is the transition to new technology — the old technology cannot be relied on for future volumes. The good news is that there has been progress in the development and implementation of STEP, the new technology. P E P staff are also working on another platform, CORPUS — an online platform to publish great deal of edition. This platform has been fully prototyped by school of informatics at I U P U I and looks like it will work well for P E P.
