In the author proofing process, seamless collaboration between the author and the compositor is crucial for a successful publication. Conventionally, PDFs are sent back and forth between compositors and authors for annotating corrections/comments and implementing them in the pagination process. This consumes a lot of time and delays the publishing process.
Challenges in incorporating author corrections include:
ProofOn is a novel solution to organize and enhance the proofing and corrections process for XML-first/digital-first workflows. This platform allows authors to insert corrections on the live files. The corrections are synchronized into the pagination application instantaneously.
Automatic cross-references: ProofOn automatically renumbers and relinks bibliography references when there are additions or deletions.
Instantaneous display of corrected version: The author can instantaneously view the revised text.
