This week there is exciting news. We are jumping ahead of all publishers out there and have decided to do something unheard of in the world of scientfiic publishing: we will start to pay authors once their manuscripts have survived peer review and have been published online. We believe that your hard work should be rewarded rather than you paying Open Access publishers to have your article published online. Want to know how much you can earn?

This week we published two new articles in the MalariaWorld Journal, so have a look. One deals with a highly interesting topic: how will people perceive and accept a malaria vaccine if it becomes available? The study was conducted in Nigeria. Second, a more basic study on deltorphin-II and its ability to impact on Plasmodium berghei. Go to 'MW Journal' and have a look (remember to log in to have full access (for free of course!).
This week also vital lessons learnt from the Blue Nile project that ran in Sudan. On how malaria can virtually be eliminated but can also return with horrible outcomes. Read Bill Jobin's story here.
Remember the call for you to participate in a survey that has been developed by Fredros Okumu of the Ifakara Health Institute in Tanzania. It is a survey that asks you to provide your views on how we can drive innovation in health, including malaria of course. It is a nice survey that will take you some 15 minutes to complete. Please note that the deadline for the initial survey is the 3rd of April. You can access the survey by clicking here.
Enjoy this week's MalariaWorld - the MW team (and we look forward to receiving your manuscripts!).
