Proofreading is typically done after your manuscript/webpage/etc. has already been “finalized.” That means it has been copy edited and is in the final stages before publication or submission. Some authors overlook the importance of a good proofreader, thinking that the copy editing phase will catch everything. A final look from a big-picture perspective is crucial to a polished piece of work.
There are two groups of thought among editors regarding proofreading. Some consider proofreading to be basic copy editing and the first necessary edit. Unscripted defines proofreading as content editing and considers it the last necessary edit.
