On-Screen Proofreading: A Handbook for Editors of Academic and Scientific Articles focuses on the professional on-screen proofreading and editing of scholarly papers. The Handbook provides practical detailed advice on the aspects of academic and scientific articles that tend to be particularly challenging for authors and editors alike. The reader is guided through the process of proofreading an article from managing files, tracking changes and adding comments in Microsoft Word to producing a clean copy ready for publication and returning it to the author. Individual chapters explain the parts of a scholarly article, their importance and their positions in a paper; outline different referencing styles and sound practices for providing complete and accurate references and quotations; discuss language and writing style with information on spelling, capitalisation, punctuation, special fonts, numbers, vocabulary, discipline-specific terminology, jargon, abbreviations, syntax, grammar and sentence and paragraph structure; and examine the effective presentation and placement of headings, tables, figures, lists and appendices. Intended to be both a step-by-step guide to the proofreading process and an informative manual to be consulted as necessary when questions and problems arise, this Handbook will be an indispensible aid to proofreaders working predominantly with digital documents in a wide range of academic and scientific disciplines, including the Social, Physical and Biological Sciences, the Humanities, Medicine, Engineering, Mathematics, Economics, Law and Management.
