Let's say you are an expert in a particular field. You write an article and submit it to a journal. Your article goes through several steps before the journal may or may not decide to publish it.
1. Expert colleagues read and scrutinized your article. Your peers in the field do this review process. .
2. A panel of expert peers judge your article and act as referees. They decide whether your article adds to the knowledge within your field.
