    It is the first time this mystery of writing papers, publishing requirements of academia has been described to me. I have worked now as a senior lecturer in social work for 7 years and nearing completion of my PhD. It certainly demystifies things. It would seem that such knowledge is not so generously shared in my neck of the woods. I will tune in for further sessions if I am available.

  • It was a golden opportunity for me to join with this workshop series. I learnt a lot from the workshops that had so far. I had no proper idea/knowledge of doing research or paper publication stuff before joining this workshop and I am learning day by day. Thank you very much, Prof. Darshana, for sharing your knowledge with us and providing us this opportunity. I like the way you explain things with examples. It is really simple to understand. Thank you again for sharing your knowledge with us.

  • Specially, as an early career researcher, the discussion on various theoretical avenues, as well as theory application gave me insights as well as clarifications on rethinking how I looked at theories before. The metaphors of the tiled floor, as well as the roller-coaster, were great as it helped to grab the ideas more firmly.
