Citing the PGP

Anyone is welcome to use our transcriptions and descriptions, but please cite them accordingly.

  • Always mention the shelfmark when citing a geniza fragment.
  • Transcriptions that come from published editions should acknowledge the original publication.
  • Unpublished transcriptions are credited to PGP team members in the database and should be cited with credit to the editor who transcribed the text, for example, “ed. M. R. Cohen, Princeton Geniza Project,” or “ed. Goitein, typed texts, available online through the Princeton Geniza Project.”
