Skip Navigation LinksProofreading

​During a proofread, I look at:

  • ​spelling
  • punctuation
  • style
  • cross-references
  • page numbers and headers/footers
  • ​word and page breaks​
  • the contents list
  • figures and tables, and their captions
  • any omissions or inconsistencies.
I only proofread on screen. Working with PDFs, I mark up any changes using Acrobat's inbuilt tools or custom 'stamps'.

For more details about proofreading, take a look at the SfEP's FA​Q page​.
