Ostrich Journal Cover Competition Winner

Earlier this year NISC launched a competition encouraging birders to submit their bird photos for a newly designed cover of Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology.

The winner was Ingo Waschkies who submitted a stunning image of a lesser flamingo phoenicopterus minor taken at Lake Nakuru, Kenya in August 2011.

The latest issue of Ostrich happens to feature an article on flamingos. The paper by JE Cooper et al is entitled "Post-mortem examination and sampling of African flamingos (Phoenicopteridae) under field conditions" and is available here.

Ingo’s photo will appear on the the cover of all 2014 issues, the first of which will be released soon. Ingo also received a free subscription to Ostrich for 2014.

Congratulations Ingo!

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.

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

The paper was wonderfully laid out and rapidly published

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.
