SAMSS 2014 Awards

Congratulations to Prof. Mark Gibbons, Mr Phumlile Cotiyane and Mr Denham Parker who were among the award recipients at the recent 15th Southern African Marine Sciences Symposium (SAMSS) held at Stellenbosch during July 2014.

Prof. Gibbons is an associate editor for African Journal of Marine Science and won the highly prestigious Gilchrist Medal for distinguished marine scientists. This Medal serves as recognition of the recipients' contribution to the field of marine science, to further stimulate excellence in South African marine science and to focus attention on South Africa's marine and coastal environments.

Mr Cotiyane and Mr Parker won the 'best poster' and best 'oral presentation' prizes respectively. They receive a book prize which was sponsored by NISC (Pty) Ltd.

Congratulations to all award recipients!

 

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)
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.

Thank you for the rare experience of a set of proofs on which I can find nothing to correct!
- SAJP author from Florida Atlantic University
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 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.
