African Zoology joins NISC from 2015

NISC is delighted to announce that we will be publishing African Zoology from 2015. This well-established title joins our list, which already includes of some of Africa’s leading natural science journals. The journal will also see a frequency increase, going from 2 to 4 issues a year.

African Zoology focuses on research pertaining to African fauna in terrestrial, freshwater, and marine ecosystems, and publishes full-length papers, critical reviews, short communications, letters to the editors, as well as book reviews. Research from other regions that advances practical and theoretical aspects of zoology is also considered.

African Zoology is the official publication of the Zoological Society of Southern Africa and has been in existence since 1965. The journal is listed on the Science Citation Index and has a 2013 two year Impact Factor of 0.848 with a five year Impact Factor of 0.929. It is also accredited with the South African DHET and included on Scopus. African Zoology will be co-published with Taylor & Francis.

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.

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.
- Stan Pillar, Editor of the African Journal of Marine Science (1996-2013)
The proofs look great! Thank you so much. The efficiency of the journal now is really excellent. Easy to work with, and so thorough. I appreciate it.
- Regular SAJP Author on his first interaction with NISC
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
Thank you for the rare experience of a set of proofs on which I can find nothing to correct!
