Proofreading is the final step before publication. Before embarking on
proofreading your draft should be as complete as you can make it and have been edited.

Refined Articles: Proof-reading and copy-editing dealing with academic writing, journals, thesis, dissertation, using APA, Harvard and Chicago referencing.

What proofreading includes:

  • Checking references against style i.e. APA, Harvard, Chicago, etc. 
  • Formatting and link checks.
  • Correction of any issues.
  • Removing and correcting errors in spelling, punctuation and grammar.
  • Checking different fonts, paragraph indents and obvious layout issues such as line spacing and paragraph breaks.
