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.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
