Volume 79, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0256-8861



Yet again, has been timeous in releasing its twice-yearly issue of the journal - this was despite the intervening festive period. Thank you to the Journal Management Team, reviewers and authors for working through this period to ensure the timeous release of issue 79(2) of the journal. In the second half of 2013, received fifteen manuscripts for consideration for publication. The online management of the journal, via the Online Journal System (OJS), ensured a relatively quick turnaround time in terms of the review process making it possible for all fifteen manuscripts to be processed by December 2013 so that the issue could be released by the target date of January 2014. Due to stringent application of the journal's editorial policy and peer review process, only a third (33%) of the fifteen manuscripts made it to the publication stage, ensuring that the quality of the journal is maintained. It is indeed pleasing to observe that there is practitioner input in this issue.
