‘Editing Robert Burns for the 21st Century’ is a major project which will underpin the production of a multi-volume edition of The Works of Robert Burns being published by Oxford University Press.

Based at the Centre for Robert Burns Studies, we commenced work on the new multi-volume edition following an award of £1.1 million by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) in 2011. In 2016 the project was awarded a further £1 million, also by the AHRC.
