NISC to handle African subscriptions for UNISA Press/Taylor & Francis

We are pleased to announce that from 2011 NISC will be handling African subscriptions for UNISA Press-Taylor & Francis co-published titles.

All journals published by NISC and UNISA Press in collaboration with Taylor & Francis are available exclusively to African customers at discounted South African Rand rates. As from 2011, for ease of purchasing, these titles are now all available for purchase through a single portal, NISC. NISC will also be handling the distribution, claims, online activations and general subscriber support for UNISA Press titles ordered through NISC.

For a list of UNISA Press titles that should now be ordered through NISC, please see the pricelist available at here.  If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact NISC.

Taylor & Francis will continue to handle subscriptions and distribution for customers outside of Africa for these co-published titles.

UNISA Press will continue to handle subscriptions and distribution for those journals not co-published with Taylor & Francis (see For further information about the UNISA Press journals and books contact

The subscriptions and distribution agreement between UNISA Press and NISC represents a beneficial and innovative partnership between two leading South African scholarly and scientific journal publishers.


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.

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
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.

Excellent attention by editor-in-chief; very good work of reviewers; good time for review and processing.

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