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 research.
The ICEB Journal Editorial Board strongly believes that joining hands with academic institutions will strengthen the need for establishing linkages between all stakeholders, it will help to promote urgently needed issues such as mental health care research, as well as have a very positive impact on improving the quality response to such children's mental health, social development, and standards of care among many other relevant issues.
- You can help us identify good academicians, practitioners, 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.
