MALARIA: On-line journal starts up -- "Malaria Reports"

Malaria Reports is a new peer-reviewed international medical journal devoted entirely to the study, diagnosis, and treatment of malaria. The journal covers the pathophysiology, diagnosis, classification, epidemiology, and treatment of malaria for physicians and medical scientists. The primary intent of the journal will be to publish clinically relevant information that will directly improve the care of patients with malaria. Basic science and experimental studies of interest to those treating disorders will also be considered for publication when relevant. Open Access publishing does have its cost; anyway, as a startup promotional activity, all articles submitted to Malaria Reports before the 31st of July 2011 is completely exempt from any charge. All published articles are immediately distributed to CrossRef, DOAJ, and other available online indexes.
