The detailed proposal (of approx. 2500 words) will be the basis of the workshop in which invited discussants, TISS Patna Centre’s faculty and their peers will give detailed comments on the abstract. The process will continue after the Orientation Course wherein the participants will be invited, with travel bursary, to attend authors’ workshop for discussion on the first draft of the paper.
