October 30, 2014 - 19:46 -- Bart G.J. Knols

At a recent conference we interviewed participants about Open Access publishing. Apparently many of you are interested in publishing in Open Access. One of the problems with Open Access publishing appeared to be that you still have to pay to publish. What we discovered is that many of you don’t know yet that our own MalariaWorld Journal (MWJ) is free to publish and free to read.

So, if you are interested to publish in a quality, true Open Access journal (peer-reviewed) then submit your next ‘malaria’ manuscript to us. It is easy and you can submit by email. Click here to read more about publishing in the MalariaWorld Journal or simply send us an email at

Upon acceptance and online-publication of your MWJ article we will notify 8400+ malaria professionals in 140 countries about your publication! 

Then we have more news from MESA:  a launch of their new website and knowledge management tools. If you are attending the ASTMH conference, please visit the MESA booth #416 (November 2nd) to find out how you can join their growing database and profit from what MESA has to offer. Read more about the MESA website and knowledge management tools here.

This week we present a Press Release from Vestergaard about their Permanet® 3.0 Long-Lasting insecticidal bed net that received support from the World Health Organization-VCAG. Please read World Health Organization's Vector Control Advisory Group supports Permanet® 3.0 Long-Lasting insecticidal bed net here.

And last, Jenni Lawton has submitted yet another column. This time Jenni wonders about the next generation of malaria scientists in Africa. She has interviewed Dr Bismarck Dinko from Ghana and Dr Janet Storm from the Netherlands about their work and experiences in Africa. Read The next generation of malaria researchers in Africa - by Jenni Lawton here.
