Special Issue: Identities in transitional societies

“Identities in transitional societies” is a special issue in the Journal of Psychology in Africa published in May 2017. The aim of this special issue is to present and debate the manifestation of the multiple dimensions of identity as they evolve in transitional societies. 

The special issue presents the perspectives of a variety of scholars from across the world-all focussed on and actively involved in finding answers related to the interesting, complex, and dynamic process of making meaning of identities.

Research in this issue emanated from a small rural community in the Eastern Cape (South Africa), through Africa (e.g. Malawi), into Europe (both the Netherlands and various Central Eastern European countries), and to the United States of America (USA).
 
The issue commences with two conceptual papers that provide a framework for the articles that comprise this issue. These two positional papers are followed by ten original research articles and two brief reports; each with innovative context-sensitive applications. 

Together, these contributions provide a glance into the varied nature of identity in transitional societies. This is further examined in Luzelle Naudé’s Editorial. Read more about the Journal of Psychology in Africa here

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.

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

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.
