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.
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 (Pap test), 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.
