Ostrich Journal Cover Competition Winner

Ostrich Journal Cover Competition Winner

Earlier this year NISC launched a competition encouraging birders to submit their bird photos for a newly designed cover of Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology.

The winner was Ingo Waschkies who submitted a stunning image of a lesser flamingo phoenicopterus minor taken at Lake Nakuru, Kenya in August 2011.

The latest issue of Ostrich happens to feature an article on flamingos. The paper by JE Cooper et al is entitled "Post-mortem examination and sampling of African flamingos (Phoenicopteridae) under field conditions" and is available here.

Ingo’s photo will appear on the the cover of all 2014 issues, the first of which will be released soon. Ingo also received a free subscription to Ostrich for 2014.

Congratulations Ingo!

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.
- Stan Pillar, Editor of the African Journal of Marine Science (1996-2013)
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)
It has been an enriching experience working with such enthusiastic and professional people at NISC who have become more friends than business partners over the years.

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.
- Barry Green, QM Editor
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.
