Anthropology Southern Africa - new to NISC

We are pleased to welcome Anthropology Southern Africa to the NISC stable of journals. The aims of this quarterly are to promote anthropology in southern Africa, to support ethnographic and theoretical research, and to provide voices to public debates. The journal looks at the current conditions in southern African, African and global societies, taking into consideration varied challenges such as the politics of difference, or poverty and dignity. It publishes peer-reviewed research articles, book reviews, commentary, and other material relevant to engaged scholarly discourse within and outside anthropology. 

Anthropology Southern Africa is the official journal of the ASnA, the professional association for social anthropologists living and working in southern Africa. The journal is also listed in the Social Science Citation Index with a two-year Impact Factor of 0.120 and a five-year Impact Factor of 0.273 in the 2013 JCR. NISC is delighted to be collaborating with Routledge on this important African publication.

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.

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.

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.
- Chris Stones, IPJP Editor-in-Chief since 2003
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.

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