It is referred to be the type of inflammation in which the condition is not very severe. There is very small level of inflammation caused due to the presence of microorganisms. The White Blood cells are involved even in this case and they coordinate with each other by signalling each other with chemicals called Cytokines.

High-impact journals are those considered to be highly influential in their respective fields. The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
