In September 2018, The New York Times announced a partnership with the George Washington University (GW) to preserve, digitize, translate, and provide analysis of The ISIS Files documents and publish them on an open, searchable website.
Immediately after digitization of the files, the original copies of the documents were hand delivered by The New York Times to the Embassy of the Republic of Iraq in Washington, DC. The ISIS Files project does not hold any original documents.
Translation, redaction, and analysis were undertaken by GW with the advice and partnership of The Times. All document redaction was done in line with an ethical framework developed and implemented by GW. The Times holds no responsibility for redaction of documents.
