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.
Cell migration is the central process for the development and maintenance of the muticellular organism and also refers to translation of cell from one location to another. The cells migrates adopting different motility mode such as mesenchymal, amoeboid or collective migration. Cell migrations are observed mostly in unicellular organisms and migrate in response to specific external signals, including chemical signals and mechanical signals. Cell migration is essential for the development and maintenance of multicellular organisms, and is also involved in immune responses and pathological conditions. Few prokaryotic organisms use flagella or cilia as their migration mode. Eukaryotic cell migration is complex and consists of combinations of different migration mechanisms. It basically involves drastic changes in cell shape which are driven by the cytoskeleton. Two very distinct migration scenarios are crawling motion and blebbing motility.
