Academic journals are periodicals in which researchers publish their findings, mostly the recent ones. Academic journals are typically peer-reviewed journals that publish theoretical discussions and articles that critically review already published work. Academic journals serve as an important forum for researchers and academicians from where they can access important information about recent developments in their field. These journals are the first choice for any in-depth examination of an issue related to science. Science as we know is scarcely imaginable without the academic journal.
Cytology can be defined as a branch of science that deals with the study of cells structure and function at microscopic level. It basically deals with diagnoses of diseases and the examination of tissue samples from the body. These examinations are basically carried out on body fluids such as blood, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid or aspirated fluid through the suction using syringe from the body. The cytological specimens are usually scraped out from the tissue or specific body parts such as Pap smear. Then these prepared specimens is spread over glass slides and stained followed by visualization under the microscope for viewing the individual cells, to analyse their shape, structure, formation and the function. These tests are basically done for the cancerous cells and to identify any viral infections.
