Welcome

 

The EWIC Scholars Databased was launched in 2001, initially to help EWIC Editors find authors for EWIC articles. As we saw its usefulness to a wider community, we decided to make it searchable and public.  The International Development Research Center (IDRC) awarded EWIC a grant to expand the EWIC Scholars database for on-line publication for free public access on the EWIC website. This important service to the international community of scholars and practitioners is crucial for information dissemination, networking and knowledge building. We continually try to update existing templates and add new ones, especially of graduate students and early career scholars. If you would like to update your template or add a template, kindly contact  EWIC Scholars Database ewicscholars@ucdavis.edu
