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 person's cough and sneezes and can be life-taking if left untreated. Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
