WHO WILL BE INTERESTED?
The journal will be of interest to board members, managers, caregivers, psychologists, counsellors and psychiatrists, volunteers, and social workers, in governmental and NGO organisations, as also to policy-makers, and university faculty who are interested in the care and study of children in institutions, as well as in other alternative forms of care. Students in social work, psychology, law and other related disciplines in all the South Asian countries, as well as other mental health professionals interested in these studies will find the journal useful.
CALL FOR PARTNERSHIPS
A substantial scientific basis for institutionalised children's concerns might exist; research might have advanced the understanding of such children's issues and made major contributions to their quality of life improvement. Nevertheless, there is a lack of coordination and dialogue across SAARC countries, policy planners, professionals, caregivers, volunteers, as well as academicians. At the same time, there is a need to strengthen mental health care as well as research related to it.
- You can help us identify good academicians, practitioners, and medical specialists, etc. from all over the world who can be part of the Editorial Board.
- You can make use of your global network to recommend good writers, researchers, practitioners and government officials to contribute research papers and articles for the journal. Since the publication of the journal will be on a long-term basis (2 issues every year), we will develop a bank of research papers, which will be published at later dates.
- Since this publication will eventually become a peer-reviewed journal, you can also help us develop a list of eminent people who can be asked to review articles, books etc.
- Finally, since the project involves money, you can also help us with some funds for meeting up the costs of publication.
We are looking forward to developing institutional and corporate partnerships. We are open to the idea of developing this publication in collaboration with your organization which we will subsequently mention in the tagline of the journal itself.
YOUR participation is crucial to the success of this landmark journal. We request you to come aboard as a sponsor of an issue. Needless to say, by this generosity, you will not only be aiding us in our cause, you will also be promoting your own CSR and philanthropic vision.
We are open to sponsorships, both in cash and kind. For instance, if you can get the printing done for one issue at your end, it will be a contribution.For any queries, please feel free to get in touch with:
