Bioterrorism is terrorism involving the intentional release or dissemination of biological agents. These agents are found in nature, and also they can be altered to cause disease, make them resistant to current medicines, or to increase their ability to be spread into the environment. The most common example for bioterrorism is the anthrax causing bacteria, Bacillus anthracis, which is used for biological attack.
Scientific journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting novel research. There are thousands of scientific journals in publication, and many more have been published at various points in the past. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Scientific journals contain articles that are peer reviewed, to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. The publication of the results of research is an essential part of the scientific method. If they are describing experiments or calculations, they must supply enough details that an independent researcher could repeat the experiment or calculation to verify the results. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
