How to proofread someone elses paper

Posted on 05.06.2018 by Clair
A colleague working in my department helped me out in proofreading my English before submitting a paper. If it was in a romantic way then yes it does count as cheating.
Do you know how to edit somebody else's rough draft. As the writer of your paper, youre not the best person for the job. I would like to acknowledge his help. This means that regardless of how innovative your ideas are, your paper will miss its mark if it contains inconsistencies and errors. Now if this person you like is single you are safe as long as you are single.
Because youre so familiar with the document, youre likely to overlook errors and points of confusion. Is there any standard sentence to do it. Instead, the end goal you should pursue as an editor is to help improve the text you're working on.
