A new addition to the NISC title list is the African Journal of Science, Technology, Innovation and Development. This journal, which officially joined NISC at the start of 2014, explores a relatively new field within academia which straddles both the Physical Sciences and Social Sciences.

With an impressive international editorial advisory committee and associate editors, the team at the African Journal of Science, Technology, Innovation and Development targets both corporate and government policy-makers and the academic communities concerned with the impact of science, technology and innovation process on industrial, economic, and social development. The focus is particularly African but the journal also publishes articles relevant to other developing economies.

This journal which publishes 6 issues a year is available on the NISC site here. NISC is pleased to be involved  in publishing collaboration, which is set to make a real impact on the future of African development. 

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.

The editorial experience was excellent: the reviewers were timely and their feedback was generative. The co-editor of the special issue was proactive about communicating information to me. In latter stages, the staff that shepherded the essay through the copy-editing stages was also very helpful and in good contact.

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.
