Urdu is spoken as the first language by nearly 70 million people and as second language by more than 100 million predominantly in Pakistan and India. The Centre’s contribution through The Gurmani Manual for Academic Writing will prove valuable not only for students and researchers but also for general writers and readers interested in Urdu academic prose and research writing. The publication stands as the most updated Urdu manual encompassing various aspects of academic writing, including research methodologies, plagiarism, abstract writing, punctuation, citations, bibliography, footnotes, proofreading, indexing, and editing of academic writing and research.

Since its publication last month, it has garnered a warm reception within Urdu literary and academic circles. In contrast to existing Urdu academic writing manuals that lack revisions and have become outdated, the Gurmani Manual addresses this gap by providing comprehensive coverage. Unlike English, which offers numerous guides on academic writing, there has been a notable dearth of such resources in Urdu. Recognizing this, the Gurmani Centre took the initiative to publish the most comprehensive Urdu manual.

“The Launch of the Gurmani Manual marks a memorable moment in the history of the Gurmani Centre. This is the first yield of its Publication Cell showcasing the centre’s commitment to setting high standards for the printed word meant for both academic and public circles.” Said Dr. Nadhra Shahbaz Khan, Director Gurmani Centre for Languages and Literature, LUMS.
