The study of parasites is called as parasitology. Parasites are microbial organisms that survives on host. Some of the parasitic diseases such as malaria may lead to lethal conditions. Parasitic organism such as protozoa feed on other microbes for their survival. Warm climatic condition favours for the parasites to cause infection or disease. African countries are more prone to malaria kind of infections. The worm parasites that cause human diseases are tape worms, pin worms and round worms. Filariasis is another kind of parasitic diseases transmitted from one person to other through insects, wherein the leg swells and resembles an elephant leg. 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. 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.
