When writing, it’s easy to become too close to your manuscript. You can miss errors and typos because you know your argument inside out. A piece of advice given by one of the consultants at UHL (and an editor of a journal himself) is to put your final draft away, out of sight, for one to two weeks and go back to it after this time with fresh eyes. Proof reading by others will also be helpful, but give yourself a chance to spot your mistakes after a break from the manuscript. If you’re working to a deadline, try and build this time into your project.
