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.

The paper was wonderfully laid out and rapidly published

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.

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 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.

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.
