    The American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene has now published a supplement (vol 75, supplement 2) that documents the science behind the project that led to malariacontrol.net. This supplement comprises a series of 15 papers presenting modelling of the complete range of issues, from understanding infectiousness, immunity, morbidity and mortality to predicting the short and long range effects of interventions and approaches to estimating cost effectiveness. These papers form the basis of the ongoing work, but do not actually report any results from the volunteer computing platform.

    You can read the abstracts if you follow this link. At the moment, only members of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene and journal subscribers can access the full-text version giving further details of the models and their predictions. We envisage that the full-text will be freely available to everyone in February 2007.

          It appears that the articles won\'t be freely available until August 2007, not February 2007, unless a special exception is made. (They aren\'t available as of 20 May 2007.)

          According to the Highwire Press entry for the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygienehere, free back issues are \"all articles after 12 months\" and the supplement, volume 75(2 supplement) was published in August, 2006, according to the supplement list at http://www.ajtmh.org/supplements.shtml.

          If you are in a \"developing country\", there is a link (http://www.who.int/hinari/en/) to \"Hinari\", which says it offers \"free or low-cost access to developing countries.\"

          Hope that helps,

          Matt

              The supplement to the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene is now freely available online at http://www.ajtmh.org/content/vol75/2_suppl/index.shtml

              Apparantly it was an oversight that it had not been made freely available sooner
