Aims and Scope
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. Malaria Journal offers a fast publication schedule while maintaining rigorous peer-review; this is achieved by managing the whole of the publication process electronically, from submission to peer-review.

In 2002, the vivax malaria community created a forum for providing a friendly environment to share and discuss research results on Plasmodium vivax. Meetings were held in Bangkok, Rockville, Panama, Barcelona, Bali, and this year, in Manaus.
The aim of this Thematic series, ‘Time to go for vivax’ (the motto of the Manaus meeting) is to emphasize this biennial event and the role it plays in promoting the study of Plasmodium vivax. The articles in the series are all based on presentations given in Manaus.

ACTwatch report on their 10-year monitoring of ACT usage in sub-Saharan Africa and in the Greater Mekong sub- region, make recommendations and share their data with the malaria community. They have spoken to BugBitten about their work and their motivation for making their datasets publicly available.
Ivermectin has been used to treat some NTDs for years, but its potential use to block malaria transmission is not well known. Carlos Chaccour and colleagues review the role the ivermectin can play in reducing malaria. Carlos Chaccour and Regina Rabinovich also discuss the series and ivermectin in their interview with BugBitten blog.
