The Final Check
Why is this chapter important? Many researchers finish their manuscripts just before (and often after!) the deadline. Due to such pressures of time, they often send their manuscript to the editor without doing a final check. Most manuscripts are written by multiple authors. This involves a lot of exchanges of versions of the manuscripts, with a consequent increase in the possibility of mistakes being introduced. Lots of changes are made at the last minute, and often no one checks them for accuracy in terms of English. One author needs to be responsible for the final check.
