What stategies do you use for revising a paper?

  • Research Writing -

    There are excellent strategies and links in here for both editing and proofreading:

    This one does, too, but the editing items are more toward the bottom; the first 3/4ths of this is mainly proofreading:

  • Research Writing -

    If nobody is available to proofread your work, you can do this yourself. After writing your material, put it aside for a day — at least several hours. (This breaks mental sets you might have that keep you from noticing problems.) Then read it aloud as if you were reading someone else's work. (Reading aloud slows down your reading, so you are less likely to skip over problems.)

    If your reading goes smoothly, that is fine. However, wherever you "stumble" in your reading, other persons are likely to have a problem in reading your material. Those "stumbles" indicate areas that need revising.

    Once you have made your revisions, repeat the process above. Good papers often require many drafts.

    I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
