NISC now partnering with Medpharm Publications

NISC, along with Cogent OA (a division of Taylor & Francis), has embarked on an exciting new partnership with a South African based open access publisher of medical journals, Medpharm Publications.

The collaboration comes as Medpharm celebrated its 25 year anniversary. This partnership will include the co-publication of four Medpharm published titles.  All of these journals are accredited by the South African Department of Higher Education & Training. They are:

In this collaboration, Cogent will provide new online website development for these titles along with editorial office management, while NISC will provide high quality production services. Medpharm will continue to manage hard copy dissemination and the pre-press process.

This partnership aims to improve the discoverability and accessibility of these high quality South African publications, making them instantly available to an international audience.

NISC is delighted to be part of this exciting venture and we look forward to working in association with Cogent-OA and Medpharm on developing these wonderful publications, and others, in the future.

A very supportive, personal and committed editorial team, which takes quality of the work very seriously. I learned a lot through the experience of publishing with Anthropology Southern Africa, and felt supported throughout the process.

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 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.
