The art and science of proofreading is more than just running spell check, catching typos, and fixing grammar and punctuation errors. A proofreader’s main responsibility is to ensure the written work reviewed is 100 percent correct; this includes looking for consistency in style, fact-checking, and at times checking against a style guide.
