Welcoming a New Journal

Eastern African Literary and Cultural Studies is a brand new, quarterly title to be published by the NISC/Taylor&Francis collaboration.

Launched in 2014, this journal covers research pertaining to literature, culture and arts of the Eastern Africa region, and the instrumental role these facets have played in the post-colonial era.

It also focuses on the interactions and impacts that arts and culture has had on other fields, including economics, politics, history, and religion.

Originating from the University of Nairobi’s Department of Literature, this innovative new journal aims to challenge ‘traditional’ approaches to scholarship on literature and culture and signal new ways of seeing and knowing the region.

Manuscripts are welcome for submission on an on-going basis and the research may also stem from the wider regions of East Africa, including Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, South Sudan, Sudan, and the Horn of Africa.

NISC is excited to be part of this important new journal’s launch and assisting in its online visibility and accessibility.

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.

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 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.

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

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.
