In some countries personal, local, and provincial capabilities being increased by and coordinated with federal assets, to produce bedded defenses against biological weapons attacks.
Open Access journals are means of accelerating scientific discovery by providing free and unrestricted access of scientific knowledge via the Internet. An essential role of Open Access is the long-term preservation of peer-reviewed scholarly journal articles and research data. OMICS is one such open access journal which is well established in an international level, with good impact factor, the impact factor for a journal can be explained as a measure reflecting the average number of citations given to recent articles published in the journal.
