The Southern African Wildlife Management Association (SAWMA) welcomes you to the online issue of our official journal, the South African Journal of Wildlife Research.
Founded in 1970, the association has published 43 volumes of the South African Journal of Wildlife Research over the past 43 years.
Scope of the Journal:
The South African Journal of Wildlife Research is an ISI ranked, leading peer reviewed scientific publication on wildlife management and research in Africa, Arabia and Madagascar. With a broad base covering scientific, applied, managerial, methodological and sociological issues related to wildlife research, the journal publishes original full-length scientific papers, short communications, book reviews as well as reviews on science-based research invited by the editor-in-chief.
All contributions are refereed by expert reviewers to ensure a high standard of published papers. The editorial process adopted by the South African Journal of Wildlife Research is for the editor-in-chief to receive manuscripts and then consult with an associate editor about appointing at least two referees. When two referee's reports have been received, these go to the associate editor who makes a decision on acceptance/revision/rejection.
Submission of manuscripts:
Manuscripts should be prepared according to the Instructions to Authors. Also consult a recent published volume of South African Journal of Wildlife Research to view the format used by the journal. Page fees charged are R200 per page for SAWMA members and R300 per page for non-SAWMA members.
The South African Journal of Wildlife Research is ISI listed. South African Journal of Wildlife Research is currently available online at SA ePublications (http://reference.sabinet.co.za/sa_epublication/wild) and BioOne (http://www.bioone.org/loi/sawr)
