Objectives

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.

    I confess that as a guest editor, I have blurred the lines between several of the journal roles. I’ve had copyeditors address content and proofreading issues; however, now I see the value in being stricter about who does what. For the journal that I am launching, I think that I will oversee most of these roles until the publication is more established.
