Adult Stem Cells are undifferentiated cells found in the body. They have the capability to renew it and regenerate damaged tissues. These are also known as somatic stem cells as they are present all throughout the body. Adult Stem Cells are inactive cells in organisms where cell turnover is low. There is a very small number of Adult Stem Cells in the human body and once removed, the capacity to divide decreases. 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. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
