World Malaria Day 2017

On 25th April 2017, BioMed Central is proud to support World Malaria Day.

Malaria thrives in areas of poverty, adding further economic and social strain on these societies. Many of those most vulnerable to the disease, especially young children and pregnant women, are not able to access the preventative tools, diagnostics and therapeutics that could save their lives. In 2015, 429,000 deaths occurred – most of these were young children.

On World Malaria Day 2017, and indeed every day, BioMed Central is proud to support efforts to reduce the global malaria burden by publishing the latest malaria research and making it free to access.

Featured Malaria Articles

Malaria Journal

New Content ItemMalaria 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.

Tropical Diseases

We also have a selection of open access, peer-reviewed journals that look at tropical diseases. Here is some of our favorite content from them for World Malaria Day.

From Tropical Diseases, Travel Medicine and Vaccines

From Tropical Medicine and Health

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.
