East African Agricultural and Forestry Journal - NEW TO NISC

Focusing on areas of agriculture, livestock, forestry and natural science management, The East African Agricultural and Forestry Journal has contributed to original research by publishing findings of scholarly works in Africa since 1908.

The journal is being co-published by Taylor & Francis and NISC from 2015 and publishes 4 issues per year with the scope of the journal being broad, allowing authors to submit a wide range of manuscripts.

In East African Agricultural and Forestry Journal, Volume 81, issue 1, authors Karanja-Lumumba, Mugambi and Wesonga look at the adoption of East Coast Fever Vaccine among smallholder dairy farmers with the objective of identifying factors influencing the uptake of the technology, looking at the economic climate of farmers in the area as one such factor.

Manuscripts submitted for publication must be original reports of research not simultaneously submitted to, or previously published in any other scientific or technical journal and must make a significant contribution to the advancement of scientific knowledge.

Research articles published are pertinent to those practicing in the field as well as those conducting research and although hold primarily African content, have an international interest too.

More information on the journal, its contents, about the aims and scopes, author submission instructions and subscription information can be found here.

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

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.
- Graham Baker, Editor of the South African Journal of Science (1973-2008)
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.
- Author - Eastern African Literary and Cultural Studies
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.
