2020 brings changes to IPJP

The Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology (IPJP), lead by new Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Gregory Swer, is now accepting manuscript submissions through ScholarOne, a comprehensive workflow-management system for scholarly journals. 

With the world of research constantly moving, ScholarOne Manuscripts makes the submission and peer-review process simpler for authors, editors and reviewers, while providing the publisher with a reliable and stable tool. The system allows the full peer-review process of new submissions to happen seamlessly and completely online.

The IPJP is a peer-reviewed Open Access journal that provides a forum for the publication of research from the Continental Philosophy tradition and which showcases the perspectives of Southern Hemisphere scholars of phenomenology. 

Whilst phenomenology remains a central concern of this journal, the title also welcomes contributions from researchers working in related areas of the Continental tradition, such as existentialism, hermeneutics, feminism, structuralism, post-structuralism, critical theory, deconstruction and psychoanalytic theory. 

Through the use of ScholarOne authors are fully involved via automated email alerts and can also track updates on their submissions online.  In addition to a new Editor-in-Chief and the introduction of the use of ScholarOne, the IPJP is now a single volume title where articles will be released online as they become available.

A special issue of IPJP is scheduled for publishing under the theme Phenomenology and Virtuality.  A call for papers was advertised earlier this year and the journal looks forward to this special issue. 

Should you wish to submit your research to IPJP via the ScholarOne platform you can view the journal's instruction for Authors online here. You can also direct general queries to the journal’s Editorial Office at IPJP.editor@nisc.co.za.



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 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 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.

A very supportive, personal and committed editorial team, which takes quality of the work very seriously. I learned a lot through the experience of publishing with Anthropology Southern Africa, and felt supported throughout the process.

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.
