catching small errors that can damage your work

Proofreading identifies and corrects typographical and grammatical errors, misspellings, punctuation and formatting mistakes, and other basic errors.  Proofreading is most appropriate for finished documents immediately before submission, either to the printer, the publisher, or for assessment.

By catching small errors that escaped your notice, proofreading can help ensure that your work makes a good impression, and does not lose points unnecessarily.  Whether you’re writing a research paper, marketing materials, a CV or a grant application, proofreading your documents before submission improves your chances of success.
