World Malaria Day 2018
On 25 April 2018, BMC is proud to support World Malaria Day.
This year’s theme for World Malaria Day is "Ready to beat malaria." In the lead-up to 25 April, WHO is focusing on important prevention strategies to counter the effects of a disease that continues to kill over 400,000 people each year. This theme highlights the combined drive and dedication of the global malaria community in coming together to work towards 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 open access research.
Featured research from BMC
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.
Infectious Diseases of Poverty
With a dynamic and robust focus on the infectious diseases that disproportionately affect poor populations, Infectious Diseases of Poverty is an open access journal with a trans-disciplinary approach spanning research, implementation and policy. Served by a well-established and global Editorial Board, the journal attracts a large readership from around the world, provides a platform for discussion and evidence building, and offers abstracts translated into Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian and Spanish.

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.
