Why is Proofreading Important before publishing?
- 4 weeks ago
Because it reduces the chances of the item being published being full of spelling + grammar + punctuation screw-ups, as well as other issues such as forgetting to remove author notes/annotations from the finalised article.
Having screw-ups like that in a publication makes it look like it was written by a half-wit, and reduces it's authority.

They used to proofread newspapers before they were published. Apparently they don't anymore, because newspaper articles are full of spelling and grammatical errors. It's a sign of professionalism.
