Drug interaction is the interaction shown by a substance which affects the activity of the administered drug. The substance which is affecting a drug activity can be another drug when both are administered together. This can also be studied as drug-drug interaction. This interaction can be synergistic or antagonistic in nature thereby causing either an increased or decreased drugs effect. Also there may be a condition in which new a new effect can be produced that is neither produced on its own. However, the interactions may also exist between drug and food called drug-food interactions. There are cases where a particular food should not be taken when a particular drug is under administration as it may result in severe crisis within the system. These accidents usually occur as a result of misuse or due to lack of knowledge about the active ingredients involved in its composition. The study of these interactions therefore seems to be important from the point of practice of medicine. Also, there are cases where an interaction stands from a theoretical point but in actual clinical practice have no important repercussions. 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.
