This week we published two new articles in the MalariaWorld Journal. We were very happy to receive immediate responses to our call for recent PhD graduates to submit an overview of their PhD work and publish the entire thesis along with it. Have a look here to see what this looks like. If you worked hard to complete your thesis, than presenting it to more than 7700 MalariaWorld subscribers in >140 countries must be the crown on your hard work. More graduates are now writing up their work, and we encourage you also to do the same. We attach the format for writing such an article below once more.
Next, we published an opinion article that places major developments in the field of malaria research and control within the context of scientific theory developed by Thomas Kuhn. Have a look here - and assess whether or not your work may lead to a scientific revolution soon!
We are very happy to receive more manuscripts for the MalariaWorld Journal. Where you don't pay to read, and you don't pay to publish. Open Access 2.0 rocks...
Speaking about Open Access 2.0, this week we published an article about open access in Index on Censorship. You can read the original article online here, or read it on the MalariaWorld platform here.
Finally, a Cliveal statement (meaning a statement from Clive Shiff) about the use of the adjective of Plasmodium as Plasmodial. This is wrong of course, but can anyone help me to determine what is correct: 'Entomological Inoculation Rate' or 'Entomologic Inoculation Rate'? And what is correct: 'Anopheline vectors' (capital A and italics) or 'anopheline vectors' (no capital letter and not in italics). Oh well, as long as we're controlling malaria, right?
Enjoy this week's MalariaWorld - the MW team.
