World Malaria Day 2017

World Health Day 2018On 25th April 2018, BMC is proud to support World Malaria Day.

This year’s global theme for World Malaria Day is End Malaria for Good. In the lead-up to 25 April, WHO is shining a spotlight on prevention, a critical strategy for reducing the toll of a disease that continues to kill more than 400 000 people annually. This theme highlights the collective energy and commitment of the global malaria community in uniting around the common goal of a world free of malaria.

On World Malaria Day 2018, and indeed every day, BMC 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.
