It is a type of cancer that originates in the lymphatic system. There are two main types of lymphoma. Hodgkins lymphoma, or Hodgkins disease, causes the cells in the lymphatic system to abnormally reproduce, eventually making the body less able to fight infection. All other types of lymphoma are called non-Hodgkins lymphomas. Cancers that spread to lymph nodes from other parts of the body are not lymphomas.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
