Tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by many strains of mycobacteria, especially Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It spreads through the lymph nodes and bloodstreams to organs in the body but most often found in lungs. It usually transmitted through air from the infected personâs cough and sneezes and can be life-taking if left untreated. 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.
