General Strategies for Editing and Proofreading


When you look over your papers to make sure that you've presented your ideas in ways that are clear to your readers, you send a message that you think your ideas are good enough to deserve a careful presentation.

Writers make changes to their papers at different levels. Knowing about these levels can help you divide up the job of getting a paper ready to hand in.
