COMPETITION: New Cover Image for African Zoology
Do you have a striking image of African fauna in terrestrial, freshwater, or marine environments that you think may be suitable for a cover?
African Zoology will be refreshing the journal’s cover in 2018. NISC therefore encourage the submission of images suitable for the new cover of this prestigious journal. In addition to the status of having your photograph featured on the cover of African Zoology, the winning entrant will receive a free 2018 print and online subscription to African Zoology.
Submissions can be photographs of any African animal(s) in their natural environment.
Submissions should ideally be in .jpg format and should be no larger than 500KB per image. Emailed submissions should be no larger than 10MB with maximum of 20 images per entrant.
Submissions must be made by the original photographer, who must have a high resolution version of the image available on request, should this image be selected.
The photographer will retain all copyright on their image and be fully credited although NISC and its partners will have the right to use the image elsewhere to promote the journal.
Submission deadline: 15 March 2018
The competition winner will be contacted directly and announced on the various NISC social media pages. If you are interested, please email your images to with the subject ‘African Zoology Cover’.
Thank you for the rare experience of a set of proofs on which I can find nothing to correct!

Perhaps the most important change, in terms of bringing the Journal to a wider audience, has been its publishing in collaboration with the NISC (Pty) Ltd.

The NISC partnership has benefited the Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology by bringing sustainability, additional branding and marketing, a wider reach through its websites, and the added value of expertise in the very competitive world of publishing.

The biggest development in the history of Quaestiones Mathematicae was the association with NISC and to have the journal running in a very stable way without severe financial concerns.

Since 1995, NISC has systematically built up competence and the necessary capacity in all aspects of publishing high-level research journals, with the professionalism needed to flourish in the increasingly competitive world of international research publications. No other publisher in South Africa commands the necessary technical skills, experience, competence, enthusiasm and resources to the same degree as NISC, in my view.
- Graham Baker, Editor of the South African Journal of Science (1973-2008)
