The Institute has developed methods of author attribution using software and statistical analysis. The Project seeks to properly attribute works of Paine, and de-attribute falsely attributed works. The results as we post them can be followed under “Writings” on this site, where there are “Newly discovered” and “Deattributed” categories. For further information please contact us.
