More often than not, it is difficult to detect mistakes in your own work because you tend to read what you intended to write, but miss out on the nitty gritty details such as misspellings or typographical errors. Well, you just need a pair of fresh eyes to spot it!

Proofreading includes the following checks:

  1. Spellings
  2. Punctuation
  3. Grammar
  4. Typographical errors
  5. Omitted words
  6. Consistency (e.g., capitalization, hyphens, abbreviations, etc.)
  7. Logical grouping
  8. Headings, subheadings and pagination
  9. Matching headers / footers
  10. Table of contents
  11. Caption and numbering for tables, figures and charts
