ResearchA well written paper which contributes to the shortage of biological knowledge on this major malaria vector species, Anopheles funestus. A longitudinal study over 104 weeks, where mosquito sampling was done in southern Mozambique, at the edge of distribution of this species.
ResearchMore than 75% of Ethiopia is malaria-endemic. The aim of this study was to identify socio-economic, geographic and demographic risk factors of malaria and produce a prevalence map illustrating variation in malaria risk.
ResearchMathematical model to investigate the effects of immunity to different stages of the life cycle of P. falciparum and vivax.
ResearchReport of a case control study of haemoglobinuria conducted over two years amongst paediatric malaria patients in Kinshasa. This may reflect an increase in the incidence of this severe complication of falciparum malaria.
ResearchThe authors have tested for differences in Plasmodium falciparum infection prevalence and intensity between Anopheles gambiae M, A. gambiae S and Anopheles arabiensis, but found no difference in susceptibility between these three populations when performing experimental infections using ¿local¿ malaria strains.
ResearchThe article raises the very important issue about how long and to what extent people will continue to comply with malaria preventive measures as incidence decreases.

Aims & 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 specialities 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.
