Writing and Research Tips
National Proofreading Day!
25th August 2022March 8th. Yes, it’s International Women’s Day, but for the editorial-minded, it’s also National Proofreading Day! Between this and National Grammar Day just a few days ago, who knew editors were such party animals? We get a lot of emails from clients who use the terms “proofreading” and “editing” interchangeably, but the two are actually very different.
The Importance of Proofreading
25th August 2022During the dissertation writing process, we get a lot of clients who are aware of the value of editing, rewriting, and revising, but did you know that a final proofread is just as important as the initial editing, if not more so? When we work with a client, after the editing process (both line and then copy) is over and the client thinks they have the finished product ready to go, we will often suggest a final proofread and format order.
