From Wikipdia:
The review process typically follows these steps:
  1. Document created by owner/author
  2. Sections of the document which need further editing are shared with other authors (co-authors)
  3. Edits collated and input into the original document
  4. Document shared with other contributors (e.g. subject-matter experts, colleagues, partners, suppliers, and consultants) for review
  5. Contributors review the document. Typically this review includes:
    • Identifying typos
    • Identifying syntax & other grammatical errors
    • Altering content
    • Adding or deleting content
  6. Reviewed content is returned to the owner/author
  7. Owner/author inputs changes and comments to the document as appropriate
  8. The review cycle is completed
FROM Docsvault, this is an interactive infographic

And one good definition:

Hope this helps.


PS. At Suarez Corporation Industries, they used envelopes which every time a document changed hands, it had to have a signature on it. These giant envelopes provided a trail of who handled the document.
