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.
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.
