The African Humanities Series

The African Humanities Series covers topics in African histories, languages, literatures, philosophies, politics and cultures and is intended to speak to scholars in Africa as well as in other world areas. Its core goal is to foreground the best research on the continent and was launched in 2014 as a project of the African Humanities Program (AHP) of the American Council of Learned Societies. Now under the auspices of the African Humanities Association (AHA), which was established in 2020 by AHP fellows, assessors, and advisers, the African Humanities Series is published in collaboration with NISC (Pty) Ltd. 

The series has broadened its coverage of topics and authorship to capture the work of scholars engaged in African Humanities research across the entire continent and globally. The expanded scope of the African Humanities Series is accommodated under two imprints: 
Reflections: A forum for African scholars as well as those in the diaspora to publish work on the state of the humanities on the continent. It will encourage especially senior scholars to reflect on their own experiences of past and current Humanities scholarship.
Cutting Edge: An outlet for innovative Humanities work which unsettles the boundaries of knowledge in ways which make us think anew about the abiding social problems across the continent.

Series editors: Adigun Agbaje & Fred Hendricks

Excellent attention by editor-in-chief; very good work of reviewers; good time for review and processing.
- Author - African Journal of Range & Forage Science
The paper was wonderfully laid out and rapidly published
- Author- Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
The review process is quick and is being done within the reasonable time. After acceptance, NISC is also quick enough to send proofs and is very efficiently publishes the accepted paper online before its print version.

- Author - Southern Forests: A Journal of Forest Science
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)
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)
