What Is Copy Editing (Copy Editing)?

- Vague and inaccurate statements
- Any mistakes that went unnoticed during the editing process
What is Final Reading? (Proof Reading)?
O Proof Reading (Final review) it is the last necessary step in the editing process – and the final stop before the book goes to press. While proofreading can make substantial changes (how to correct inconsistent spelling or hyphenations) in the language of the manuscript, the reviewer's role is more about quality assurance.

- wrong/bad URLs
- Numbers that don't add up in a table
- duplicate words
- lost words
- any missed mistakes
