Call for Papers: African-European Birds

Leading up to the International Ornithological Congress 2022, Ostrich Journal of African Ornithology will be publishing a special issue titled, “Africa’s European Birds”.

Europe and Africa have strong ornithological ties, and understanding ornithology in Africa is fundamental to species conservation of many species that occur in Europe.

The initiative will be led by Ostrich Advisor Dr Dayo Osinubi (FitzPatrick Institute) and Guest Editor, Dr Almut E. Schlaich (Dutch Montagu’s Harrier Foundation). The special-issue invites research papers on the theme of birds found in both Europe and Africa. A wide variety of topics related to the theme will be considered e.g. communities, conservation, migration, threats and opportunities. 

The deadline for submission is 15 October 2021. Articles are published online on acceptance, with the printed issue scheduled for March 2022.

This special issue is a great opportunity to showcase your research in preparation for the International Ornithological Congress to be held in Durban 14-22 August 2022:

Ostrich is the scientific journal of Birdlife South Africa published in conjunction with NISC and Taylor and Francis. Ostrich is Africa’s leading ornithological journal, with 90 years of publishing experience. Submitted articles will undergo double-blind peer-review.

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

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)
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 paper was wonderfully laid out and rapidly published
