NISC to Publish the Premier South African Finance Journal

Aimed at investment professionals, included in the Thomson Reuters Social Science Citation Index and accredited by the South African Department of Higher Education and Training, the Investment Analysts Journal is regarded as the premier South African finance journal. 

As of 2015 the journal is being published by NISC and Taylor & Francis and receives academic support from the University of Cape Town, Stellenbosch University and the University of Pretoria’s Gordon Institute of Business Science.

Being the official journal of the Investment Analysts Society of South Africa, the Journal produces high quality and original research three times a year and in seeking to establish a balance between theoretical and empirical studies, papers written in areas of finance, investment, accounting and economics are considered for publication. 

In Volume 44, Issue 3, 2015, Adam Zaremba’s article titled, “Country selection strategies based on value, size and momentum,” is a study providing convincing evidence that stock markets with low capitalisation, low valuation ratios and high momentum tend to outperform country markets with high capitalisation, high valuation rations and low momentum.

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.

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 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.
