NISC to Publish new journal focused on Management in Africa

NISC is delighted to announce that we are publishing a new journal from 2015 titled the Africa Journal of Management. 

The journal is co-published with Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Africa Academy of Management. Professor Stella Nkomo, Africa Academy of Management President, noted that the inaugural issue of the Journal is a critical intervention in moving towards the goals of the academy. 

The primary purpose of the Africa Journal of Management is to advance management theory, research, education and practice in Africa by promoting the production and dissemination of high quality manuscripts. The journal is designed to serve academic research and management practitioners in Africa and abroad.

In the article, “Why the Africa Journal of Management and Why Now?”, Dr. David Zoogah, Dr. Moses Acquaah and  Professor Stella Nkomo underline the great importance and need for this journal by saying that issues of management in Africa and articles written by African authors continue to be a minimal contribution to the large body of published management literature. 

A notion was also made that indigenous knowledge about management in and for Africa must be generated. Thus, the Africa Journal of Management will endeavour to work with African business schools and other interested parties to work with young and upcoming African management scholars and educators to help them build management capacity, research and publications competencies and confidences.

The Journal will accept original theoretical and empirical research, address contemporary issues relevant for management in Africa and wherever possible, manuscripts should cover more than one single country, or demonstrate relevancy for the wider African context. Full length research papers, review papers, research notes and management tools are to be published in this journal. 
Further information about the journals aims and scopes, subscribing to this journal and information about the latest issues can be found here.

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 biggest development in the history of Quaestiones Mathematicae was the association with NISC and to have the journal running in a very stable way without severe financial concerns.
- Barry Green, QM Editor
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.
