Testimonials from our partners:
‘AOSIS provides a constant base of professional consistency and efficiency and is the most important factor that has contributed to our broad international scope and recognition’.
‘What is prominent in this relationship is the overall professional service we receive from AOSIS and the high technical and editorial standard of their publications.’
‘I consider myself extremely lucky to be working with AOSIS. I find the AOSIS staff very helpful and friendly, efficiently and quickly responding to queries. Putting this particular journal together has been challenging, both because of the experience level of many of the authors, and my own limitations in managing in a virtual environment. In this regard, I have found the staff and management at AOSIS exceptionally helpful and facilitative, not to mention patient when faced with repeated challenges.’
To discuss a potential publishing partnership for your journal, contact us.
Some journals and books in our portfolio rely fully or partially on financial contributions to enable them to continue providing valuable research in their area of specialisation for both Africa and beyond.
