Page proofs

Just when you think your manuscript is finished - you receive page proofs for checking. This week I have spent over 20 hours checking page proofs for two manuscripts that are going to be published in the American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology in August. They both contain many phonetic symbols, and there were many author queries, even though we were very careful in preparing the manuscripts. It is a long way from first submission to publication.
