Particle radiation is a type of radiation which can be defined as fast-moving subatomic particles/rays. These rays are primarily generated through disintegration of unstable atoms. The radiation with same direction of motion is considered as particle radiation. Particle beam radiation therapy is one of the recent cancer therapy method used to treat cancers. This method devises beams of protons or other charged particles such as helium, carbon or other ions instead of photons for radiation therapy.
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.
