Editing/proofreading tip - Begin in the middle

I've been doing a lot of editing recently. One strategy that I have found to be tremendously helpful is this... at least once when you are editing/proofreading, begin reading the paper in the middle. Read to the end and then go back to the beginning and read the first half of the paper. You are likely to catch some things in the second half of the paper that you might miss otherwise.

Happy Reading!
