Return proofs promptly

Galley proofs are extremely time-sensitive from the publisher's standpoint. Read and correct the proof and return it immediately to the editor. Delays at this point are costly to everyone.

Celebrate - You have published!

As the final step in the publication process, the editor organizes and makes up an issue from proofed papers, and sends the entire issue to the publisher. The publisher then prints and mails the issue to journal subscribers. Reprints are usually mailed to authors within a week or two of publication.

Now you can at last rejoice! With pride, add this title credit to your growing resume and begin your next publication.


To think justly we must understand what others mean; to know the value of our thoughts, we must try their effect on other minds.
