Relevance of the subject and its importance in broader economic and social context was considered critical in making the choice. We have made it open for others as well. The posts are expected to be analytical and may be short or long, completely at the discretion of the authors. Please discuss on the format in case you choose to send your article in Bangla.

You can also mail your write up directly to info@ergonline.org with ‘Contemporary Issues’ as the subject of your mail. Your write-up should include a title, your name and your current academic or professional status. You can also post short comments on any topic just by clicking ‘Submit Comment’ under ‘Submit’ section.

To ensure a minimum quality of the write-ups, all submissions including comments will be examined and edited (if required) by relevant experts before they are finally posted on the website.
