African Zoology New Cover Competition

 

African Zoology is undergoing some changes in 2015 including a new submissions site, a new online home as well as an increase to four issues a year. As part of these changes, we will be refreshing the journal’s cover. We are therefore putting out this call for the submission of images suitable for the new cover this prestigious journal.

Do you have a striking image of African fauna in terrestrial, freshwater, or marine environments that you think may be suitable for the cover? 

In addition to the status of having your photograph featured on the cover of African Zoology, the winning entrant will receive a free 2015 print and online subscription to African Zoology.

  • Submissions can be photographs of any African animal(s) in their natural environment.
  • Submissions should ideally be in .jpg format and should be no larger than 500KB per image. Emailed submissions should be no larger than 10MB with maximum of 20 images per entrant.
  • Submissions must be made by the original photographer, who must have a high resolution version of the image available on request, should this image be selected.

The photographer will retain all copyright on their image and be fully credited although NISC and its partners will have the right to use the image elsewhere to promote the journal

Submission deadline: 31 October 2014 

The competition winner will be contacted directly and announced on the various NISC social media pages. If you are interested, please email your images to info@nisc.co.za with the subject ‘African Zoology Cover’.

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)
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)
Excellent attention by editor-in-chief; very good work of reviewers; good time for review and processing.
- Author - African Journal of Range & Forage Science
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.
