He replied that although they have no measuring tool for galaxies, the believe the are moving in arcs and in arcs around each other.

To submit your idea for peer review you need to write it up as a proper science paper,
in the style dictated by the journal you are submitting it to.
The journal will review the paper to see if it meets the standards they expect, and if it
meets their standards they will pass it on to a number of referees, who are experts in
the field of study relevant to the article in question (in this case astronomers, physicists,
cosmologists) who will check the paper from a technical perspective, and if they feel it
necessary will suggest any alterations/corrections or ask questions of the original author,
assuming they don't just reject it completely.
If you don't have physics (or other relevant) qualifications it is sadly quite likely that your paper
would be rejected out of hand by any serious publication without bothering to actually
send it out to referees.
To minimise the chances of this you need to do a LOT of work to make your hypothesis as
sound as possible and make your paper completely compliant with the relevant standards.
I good hypothesis will agree with everything (relevant) that is already experimentally known,
and explained by the current hypothesises while also explaining the new data not explained
by those theories and/or making testable predictions to experiments/observations that can
be looked for.
It must be falsifiable, ie it must be possible to disprove.
And importantly you need to make Absolutely sure it isn't falsifiable with currently available data.
EDIT: I should have said, they will expect your idea to be presented in the form of a mathematical model
and you should have tested the model to see if it produces something that looks like the universe we see
Try elaborating on your idea here, (not typing on your phone) as I am not sure what you are postulating.
