This module completes our overview of the proofreading process begun in the previous lesson.
We’ll see how the proofreader’s and author’s corrections are made to the galley by the layout editor. We’ll also acquaint ourselves with how the section editor, proofreader, and layout editor communicate using OJS’s now-familiar system of generating automatic notifications. It’s important for the section editor to have a good understanding of this process in case there are questions from journal team members about the multiple steps involved in this stage of the editorial process.
You’re almost done! Now login as the Proofreader and complete the tasks as outlined in the video and readings. Let me know how it goes.
