Human skin is the covering, or integument, of the bodyâs surface which helps provide protection and receive sensory stimuli from the external environment. There are three layers of skin such as epidermis, dermis and subcutis. Epidermis forms an outermost layer that contains the primary protective structure, the stratum corneum. A fibrous layer that supports and strengthens the outermost layer is the dermis. Subcutis is a subcutaneous layer that is present under dermis. It supplies nutrients to the other two layers and covers and insulates the body.
A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
