Only Muslim scholars are invited to participate in the IEQ-Project. We are currently looking for more scholars to join the project in various capacities.
A Note to scholars:
Initiated by the Center for Islam and Science (Canada), IEQ is a unique effort by Muslims from around the world to produce the first English language encyclopedia of the Qur’ān from an Islamic perspective. As such, your participation in this project, which has the potential of redirecting and reframing the discourse on the Qur’ān in the Academy for decades to come, is highly valuable.
If you are interested in writing one or more entries, please use links below to download sample contract, which also specifies remuneration to be paid, author guidelines, transliteration scheme, sample entries and a list of entries still available for volume 1.
Once you have selected an entry, please send an outline of the entry to firstname.lastname@example.org; your outline will be reviewed within 7 days and you will receive further instructions. You may also want to read the following documents:
i.There are four special font files needed to conform to the font specifications. Fonts are sent to the authors after a contract has been signed.
ii. Once received, copy (install) these fonts in your windows/fonts directory.
iii. Open MS Word. When you wish to insert a diacritic, go to Insert>symbol> a window will open.
iv. Make sure you have IEQ as the name of the font, scroll down to the special gylphs; find the diacritic you are looking for, and insert.
v. You can also make a short-cut from this window for future use by pressing the "shortcut key" and then selecting a combination: for example ALT + a for a with a dash on top, etc.
