"...This is an excellent program. I'm so glad that I stumbled on to this when researching for task management programs. Very low learning curv, quite flexible, and the price is right. Tried at least 20 other programs, either too complicated, too expensive, or poor documentation..."

  1. Overview.
    • Definition. Document revision is a process of reviewing a document and its content for logical mismatches, work spelling errors, and information accuracy to detect and remove all mistakes and ensure that the document is correct and addresses the major idea.
    • Approach. The revision process is carried out under a certain approach. We suggest you to use a 3-step approach to turn your paper into a correct and comprehensive document. Below in this checklist we describe the suggested approach which includes these steps:
      • 1-st Revision: reviewing the document for logical mismatches and structural mistakes.
      • 2-nd Revision: examining word spelling and checking the information for relevance and accuracy.
      • 3-rd Revision: approving the paper.
  2. 1-st Revision.
    • Review your document relatively quickly to look for logical mismatches, parts of the text to be clarified, places to be specified and deepened, and broad structural changes to be checked.
    • Do not focus on spelling, punctuation, and similar errors during the 1-st revision.
    • Instead, focus on the overall content of your document to understand the key point that the document addresses.
    • Determine if the information really suits the purpose and scope of your paper.
    • Mark places that are not relevant to the document topic or are not logically clarified and accurate.
    • Revise the document or its separate parts if you determine that there are logical mismatches and uncertainties that may confuse the reader.
    • Have the 1-st revised version of your paper ready for the 2-nd revision.
  3. 2-nd Revision.
    • Use 4C rule to check the document content. 4C means Clear, Complete, Correct and Credible.
    • Scan your document for typos and misspellings.
    • Remove or remake clumsy sentences and confusing or misleading phrasing.
    • Cut unnecessary words from the document (e.g. "just", "really", "quite", "perhaps", "that", etc.)
    • Check the document content for commonly misused or confused words and expressions.
    • Rewrite sentences or entire paragraphs if needed to make them more cohesive.
    • Be sure the document is properly cited and referenced.
    • Be sure the document contains current, accurate and relevant information (numbers, dates, calculations, formulas and the like).
    • Review images and graphs (if any) for correctness and appropriateness.
    • Add visual aids (like arrows, notes) to the document to make it more interesting and understandable.
    • Have the 2-nd revised version of the document ready for the 3-rd, final revision.
  4. 3-rd Revision.
    • Read the document aloud for yourself or somebody else who is concerned with the content.
    • Look for any spelling, punctuation, or other errors that might have been overlooked in the previous revision steps.
    • Rework the document if you detect any logical or spelling mistakes.
    • Ask your listener about the document. Can the listener retell the major idea? Are there any confusing and inaccurate places in the document?
    • Prepare a revised copy of the document for approval.
    • Approve the document and submit it to the reader.
  5. General Tips.
    • Use a word processing program (e.g. MS Word) to create and edit your document.
    • Be sure this program has a built-in spell checking module.
    • Also consider using a spelling dictionary and grammar to check special and rarely-used words and expressions.
    • Do not spend your time and effort on revising parts of sentences if the whole paragraph is to be deleted or completely reworked.
    • Have a printed copy of your document for spell...
