World Malaria Day 2018

World Health Day 2018On 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

MalariaMalaria Journal

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.

Poverty & DiseaseInfectious 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.

Parasites & Vectors

Parasites & Vectors publishes articles on the biology of parasites, parasitic diseases, intermediate hosts, vectors and vector-borne pathogens. Read some of our latest publications on malaria below.

BMC Public Health

As the largest open access public health journal in the world, BMC Public Health is a peer reviewed journal with a broad scope welcoming articles on the epidemiology of disease and the understanding of all aspects of public health. With a highly-visited website and frequent press coverage, we are part of the BMC series, a research community-focused collection publishing scientifically valid studies based on community-agreed standards of questioning, methods and analysis.


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.
