Rubella is caused by a virus called rubella virus. It is also called German measles. In this the person develops rashes all over the body and this disease may easily spread to other person by contact or by air hence it is contagious. It is usually common in children. There are few symptoms of the rubella that include mild fever and headache; the adult may even not notice the symptoms because its symptoms are very similar to the flu.
The rubella virus can be prevented by vaccination by MMR vaccine which is a combined vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella. It generally makes the individual permanently immune to the virus. Diagnosis can be done by the blood test. But once the person has this disease it cannot be treated. Only medications are given to reduce the symptoms.
Scientific journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting novel research. There are thousands of scientific journals in publication, and many more have been published at various points in the past. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Scientific journals contain articles that are peer reviewed, to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. The publication of the results of research is an essential part of the scientific method. If they are describing experiments or calculations, they must supply enough details that an independent researcher could repeat the experiment or calculation to verify the results. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
