Many people here will already know about the first paper, but just in case... Congrats again, everyone. Looking forward to the next one, soon. If you're wanting more detail on the day-to-day activities of OSM, you'll find most of it at Github (rather than here) - it just seems to be working better as a platform: https://github.com/OpenSourceMalaria/OSM_To_Do_List/issues?q=is%3Aopen
First Open Source Malaria paper might be of interest to a number of people in this community: http://pubs.acs.org/doi/full/10.1021/acscentsci.6b00086, along with a lay summary in The Conversation (https://theconversation.com/making-drug-development-less-secretive-could-lead-to-quicker-cheaper-therapies-64744) and a "Credit Reel" blog post giving the back story (https://intermolecular.wordpress.com/2016/09/14/open-source-malarias-first-paper/). By chance this coincided with the release yesterday of the report of the UN High Level Panel on Access to Medicines (http://www.unsgaccessmeds.org/final-report/) which says "the world must take bold new approaches to ... health technology innovation".

Open Source Drug Discovery: Highly Potent Antimalarial Compounds Derived from the Tres Cantos Arylpyrroles - ACS Central Science (ACS Publications)
The development of new antimalarial compounds remains a pivotal part of the strategy for malaria elimination. Recent large-scale phenotypic screens have provided a wealth of potential starting points for hit-to-lead campaigns. One such public set is explored, employing an open source research ...
