Capacity Building

Capacity Building


One of the most important aspects of SRHM’s editorial policy is to provide support to authors whose papers have valuable and cutting edge information to share but which need editing and revision to reach the standard required for peer review publication. This often consists of giving detailed suggestions on how to improve a paper prior to peer review. Following review, the editor offers additional detailed comments that focus on the language, structure and/or organisation of a paper as well as content. After finalisation by the authors and acceptance, detailed copy editing is carried out. This mentoring policy has served to support a large pool of authors and it has been particularly important for authors from Global South countries.

Through its capacity building activities SRHM aims to support the development of a stronger and more diverse cadre of researchers, program and policy makers, service delivery providers who publish, disseminate and use rights and evidence based knowledge in the field of SRHR.


The mentoring programme offers those working on SRHR from across the South Asia region training, support and mentoring on analysis, research and writing, with a rights- and evidence-based perspective. The selected candidates /fellows will be under the guidance of experienced mentors and editors during the duration of the fellowship. The programme also offers fellows an opportunity to publish their research in the South Asia journal edition of SRHM (subject to peer review and editorial approvals). As part of the programme, fellows will be provided with several opportunities towards building their capacities on rights and evidence-based knowledge creation including through theme-based and methodology webinars and workshops on analysis and writing.

Applicants must be based in India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka or Pakistan.
