Self Proofreading Tips


Self proofreading is about searching one’s own writing for grammatical and typographical errors. It is an essential process that has to be well executed before any paper is finalized and sent for publishing. One can outline certain basic strategies for good proofreading and editing.

  • Take time away from work for a while
  • Slow reading can spot errors
  • Check consistency of main topic
  • Do loud reading
  • Role-playing while reading
  • Eliminate grammatical mistakes
  • Evaluate the evidence you claim
  • Paragraph construction check
  • Make someone else to read it
  • Find what your personal mistakes generally are from your tutor(no one is perfect)
  • Use strategies to correct those mistakes
  • Spell check and punctuation/ apostrophizes
  • Check the sentence formation
  • Remove mixed construction sentences
  • Check for parallelism
  • Revision is required
  • Be reader centered and not writer centered
