Dignity is recognized as a core issue in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and as a central nursing value within the International Code of Ethics and national nursing codes. But, the concept is still vague leading to confusion about its meaning. Patients who are suffering from various diseases should be given respect and treated as an ultimately self-determining individual with potentialities within himself is the utmost expression of respect to dignity.
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.
