NEW to NISC - South African Journal of Accounting Research

The South African Journal of Accounting Research will be published by NISC and Taylor & Francis from 2015. The journal is an accredited, national academic journal which is published annually by the Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors, the South African Institute for Chartered Accountants and the Southern African Accounting Association. 

The South African Journal of Accounting Research publishes research papers, notes and commentaries that address issues relevant to accounting academics and professional accountants in Southern Africa and elsewhere. 

To provide a balanced presentation, contributions are welcomed from fields ranging from environmental accounting, ethics and accounting education. These fields may be approached from a wide variety of perspectives such as behavioural, technological, institutional, organisational, regulatory, societal, educational or environmental. 

Editor of The South African Journal of Accounting Research, Professor Enrico Uliana, a Chartered Accountant, entered academia after 10 years in practice, obtaining his doctorate in financial management. He is rated by the National Research Foundation and the South African Accounting Association presented him with the Ernst and Young Outstanding Contribution to Accounting Research Award.

Research papers submitted to this journal should be analytical and make a contribution to knowledge in the field. They may be empirically based (including survey and case study methods) or review and theoretically based. Notes and commentaries should meet all the criteria for good research, however their interest and topicality may compensate for the research problem being less rigorously pursued. Notes and commentaries would typically be shorter than research papers, and a faster turnaround time is expected.

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 proofs look great! Thank you so much. The efficiency of the journal now is really excellent. Easy to work with, and so thorough. I appreciate it.
- Regular SAJP Author on his first interaction with NISC
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.

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.
- Stan Pillar, Editor of the African Journal of Marine Science (1996-2013)
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.
