SAMSS 2014 Awards

Congratulations to Prof. Mark Gibbons, Mr Phumlile Cotiyane and Mr Denham Parker who were among the award recipients at the recent 15th Southern African Marine Sciences Symposium (SAMSS) held at Stellenbosch during July 2014.

Prof. Gibbons is an associate editor for African Journal of Marine Science and won the highly prestigious Gilchrist Medal for distinguished marine scientists. This Medal serves as recognition of the recipients' contribution to the field of marine science, to further stimulate excellence in South African marine science and to focus attention on South Africa's marine and coastal environments.

Mr Cotiyane and Mr Parker won the 'best poster' and best 'oral presentation' prizes respectively. They receive a book prize which was sponsored by NISC (Pty) Ltd.

Congratulations to all award recipients!

 

Thank you for the rare experience of a set of proofs on which I can find nothing to correct!

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)
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.
- Chris Stones, IPJP Editor-in-Chief since 2003
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)
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.
