Do You Proof Yourself?

When transcribing a document or writing up your research conclusions, do you take a second look at what you've written? Do you really proof what you've typed? That little bit of extra time may save you from making a mistake that later you don't realize is incorrect.

And proofing is always a good way to catch errors in your logic or reasoning.

  1. When I transcribe a document I like to put it aside for a couple of days before proofreading it. That way it is fresh again. Also if I find td a whole too many mistakes (ie I skipped a whole phrase) I will proofread it a second or third time.
