"Review" that does not mean "read everything there is from cover to cover." 

Perhaps I should say "survey the literature" rather than "review". The point is to identify the most promising and authoritative sources in the field.

Identifying useful sources and incorporating them is a gradual process. Many good editors work on an article over a period of years.
