Call for Freelance Abstractors and Translators
The MCA project (Muslim Civilisations
Abstracts) was conceived as a means of furthering the study of Muslim
societies and civilisations by accessing scholarly literature in various
languages. The aim is to strengthen and share such knowledge across
linguistic and cultural divides.
The MCA will provide systematic bibliographic
indices and abstracts of works concerning Muslim civilisations,
published in most of the languages and countries of the world. These
will be selected works of scholarship, involving original research and
analysis, advances in relevant methodology and/or creative contributions
to the understanding of intellectual and social problems affecting
Muslims. The abstracts, written in English by scholars, expert in the
relevant subjects, will be provided in time in multiple languages:
Arabic, French, Malay/Indonesian, Persian, Russian, Turkish and Urdu.
The MCA is therefore looking to recruit freelance abstractors and translators to contribute to its work, commencing immediately.
