See the "Revision Checklist" section of the article The Research Paper (http://www.chesapeake.edu/Writingcenter/respaper.html) from Chesapeake College. The checklist asks some general questions to help you step back and take a look at the overall content and structure of the paper, then drills down to paragraphs, sentences and words for a closer examination of the writing style.
Almost all the OWLs have very large sections on grammar, sentence and paragraph structure, writing style, proofreading, revising and common errors. Browse some of the larger OWLs like Purdue University and University of Victoria and see the linked articles on Revising and rewriting (p. 52).
