How to Proofread an Article

eHow of the Day

How to Proofread an Article

Webster's Dictionary defines proofread as "to read (printers' proofs, copy, etc.) in order to detect and mark errors to be corrected." I would add that while proofreading, the goal should be to improve the quality of the writing as well as to discover the errors. As writers here on eHow (and even elsewhere), each of us needs to proofread and correct our articles before posting them. A well written article (without mistakes) will entertain/inform your readers without them having to stumble through because of the errors. My goal with this commentary is to provide you with a set of tips that you can use to improve the quality of your articles.
