Featured Malaria Articles
Malaria Journal is aimed at the scientific community interested in malaria in its broadest sense. It is the only journal that publishes exclusively articles on malaria and, as such, it aims to bring together knowledge from the different specialties involved in this very broad discipline, from the bench to the bedside and to the field.
BioMed Central has a wide collection of journals that publish research relating to the field of infectious diseases. This section showcases some of their best content relating to World Malaria Day.

- Early rising asexual parasitaemia in Nigerian children following a first dose of artemisinin-based combination treatments of falciparum malaria
From Infectious Diseases of Poverty
- The association between malaria and malnutrition among under-five children in Shashogo District, Southern Ethiopia: a case-control study

Parasites & Vectors
Parasites & Vectors publishes articles on the biology of parasites, parasitic diseases, intermediate hosts, vectors and vector-borne pathogens. Manuscripts published in this journal will be available to all worldwide, with no barriers to access, immediately following acceptance. Below is some of our research that ties in with World Malaria Day.

The ISRCTN registry is a primary clinical trial registry recognised by WHO and ICMJE that accepts all clinical research studies (whether proposed, ongoing or completed), providing content validation and curation and the unique identification number necessary for publication. All study records in the database are freely accessible and searchable. ISRCTN supports transparency in clinical research, helps reduce selective reporting of results and ensures an unbiased and complete evidence base.
Ivermectin to reduce malaria transmission
This ‘Ivermectin to reduce malaria transmission’ thematic series in the Malaria Journal aims at providing a comprehensive assessment and factors to consider in adapting this tool for a potential new indication.
This thematic series looks at the anti-malarial market complexity one decade after the introduction of artemisinin combination therapy – evidence from sub-Saharan Africa and the Greater Mekong Sub-region. Read it here.
