Fractures Peer-review Journals

When an object breaks into two parts or pieces or gets separated in two different parts due to stress then that is the situation which we call a fracture. There are two common types of fracture; they are brittle fracture and ductile fracture. It can be a bone fracture, ligament fracture, etc. It can be diagnosed by x ray or other imaging techniques. 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. 

A bone fracture is a medical condition where the continuity of the bone is broken. A significant percentage of bone fractures occur because of high force impact or stress.

However, a fracture may also be the result of some medical conditions which weaken the bones, for example osteoporosis, some cancers, or osteogenesis imperfecta (also known as brittle bone diseases). A fracture caused by a medical condition is known as a pathological fracture.

The word “break” is commonly used by lay (non-professional) people. Among doctors, especially bone specialists, such as orthopedic surgeons, “break” is a much less common term when talking about bones.

A crack (not only a break) in the bone is also known as a fracture. Fractures can occur in any bone in the body. There are several different ways in which a bone can fracture; for example, a break to the bone that does not damage surrounding tissue or tear through the skin is known as a closed fracture.
