Muslim Civilisations Abstract Project

Muslim Civilisations Abstracts Project

Publications in Muslim societies are not widely known or accessible due to insufficient promotion of these resources and linguistic barriers.

The Muslims Civilisation Abstracts project (MCA) at Aga Khan University seeks to widen knowledge worldwide about important publications emanating from Muslim contexts.

The initiative records, translates and creates abstracts of Muslim writings in eight languages: Arabic, English, French, Malay/Indonesian, Persian, Russian, Turkish and Urdu.

As a project of the Institute for Study of Muslim Civilisations, the MCA catalogue and publications are a unique source of insight into Muslim cultures around the world.​​
