The Refereeing System in Astronomy
Experience with the refereeing system in astronomy is given1, In spite of a seeming antagonism between a referee (and editor) and an author, I believe that authors profit a great deal from having their article refereed, and they know it and wish to continue the system. Publication is in a state of flux, due to the large increase in the number of articles being submitted and the great increase in the use of the internet for preprints. The outcome cannot be predicted, but whatever it is, the refereeing system must be included.
