JU Editing and Publishing Course 2019 - Class Project

The details of the project that needs to be done by students of this course can be found at: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1LJM9DWUNRgRp11fWTARICSZBTZGDeeCv. Please read the details very carefully.

The “auction” of the companies will be conducted by Somnath Basu on Tuesday, 19 February 2018, at 6 p.m. Late-comers will have to make do with what is left at the time of their arrival.

In order to avoid confusion, a Google Document has been created where students are expected to list the members of each group formed. Please note that a group should have at least three and at most five people (ignore the brief which says that groups of two are allowed). Please access the document at: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1XC4c-Ub_p6QSD3sZKfz7DSwGPacMNAaRq2Mbl04hcEc/edit?usp=sharing and add the names of all the members in the second column - the group number is not important. Currently, there are entries for ten groups as there are only ten publishers.
