Phasing out of the printed version of the African Journal of Wildlife Research
In line with modern trends, and taking printing costs and environmental impacts into consideration, the decision has been made to phase out the printed version of the African Journal of Wildlife Research from Volume 49, Number 1 (2019) onward.
A continuous publishing model has been adopted, meaning that contributions are published online as they are finalised. Paid up members should have the access codes to view the full text and will also be able to create publication alerts for any new additions of articles. Access codes are supplied by the SAWMA secretariat, Elma Marais (firstname.lastname@example.org
