Design (proof creation)
Once the final manuscript has been agreed, it will be typeset to create a PDF page proof. Three rounds of proofs will be made available for authors to:
- see how the final typeset pages will look;
- ensure they are free from typesetting errors;
- check that agreed changes have been made.
Please note: significant changes to the text will result in extra work, delays and costs – so are best avoided.
During the proofing stage pages will be read by a professional proofreader and where agreed, an index compiled.
