John Costa of Ashdin Publishing has written to let us know about a new open access journal on malaria: Malaria Chemotherapy, Control & Elimination.
John Costa explains that, the new journal, MCCE, has been recently launched by Ashdin Publishing. The journal aims to bridge basic and applied malaria research in tropical and other settings.
MCCE will provide contributors with a forum for publication of research findings, in the form of basic science, clinical studies, case reports, and focused or general reviews of science or policy. MCCE is published using an open access publication model, meaning that all interested readers will be able to accessÂ the journal freely online without the need for a subscription.
Although Editorial Board positions have not yet all been been filled, there is a significant contribution from the London School of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (LSHTM) and alumni as well as other distinguished workers. The publishers hope to see the journal accepted as an essential forum in the coming years.
Of note, the journal will be affiliated with the Malaria Center at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, which houses the largest number of malaria researchers, students and support staff in Europe. The Center is unique in its size and breadth and draws together the diverse research and teaching activities carried out at the School.
