Proofreading

General Overview

This is the last stop in the editing process and focuses on double-checking everything. This will be a two-pass read of the manuscript that includes a read of a printed copy and a read on-screen. 

Typically, a proofread will include an editorial letter that will run one to three pages, noting any discrepancies and findings and comments made inside your manuscript in Track Changes.
