Second Call – Health Informatics South Africa (HISA) 2013 Conference: Submissions Close 22 April

HISA 2013 Scientific Programme Committee Chair, Dr Nicky Mostert-Phipps (nicky.mostert[at]nmmu.ac.za), announces that the South African Computer Journal, the official journal of the South African Institute of Computer Scientists and Information Technologists and accredited by the South African Department of Higher Education and Training, will invite submission of the best papers from the conference, based on recommendations from the scientific programme committee. These papers will be reviewed to the journal’s standards, and must contain at least 30% additional material. Reviewing for the journal will be expedited to ensure publication of papers that do not require substantial changes in a special edition of SACJ in July 2013. SACJ is an open access journal with no cost for readers, enhancing your chances of being read and cited. To cover publication costs, the journal levies an open access charge, which can be waived for authors unable to fund such charges (usually met by university research offices, based on expected income from subsidized publications).
