Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields.

Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
Cytotechnology can be defined as the microscopic interpretation of cells for the detection of cancer and other abnormalities. It basically examines collected from the uterine cervix, lung, gastrointestinal tract or body cavities. These specimens are evaluated by Cytotechnologists on glass slides using microscopes to determine whether the specimen is normal or abnormal. The abnormal specimens are further sent for medical diagnosis.
Cytotechnologists evaluate cell samples with a fine needle. Cytotechnologists are trained to notice subtle changes in cells so they can accurately recognize different diseased conditions.
