6.1. Reading the manuscript
The presentation of the manuscript received from the author service has already been discussed in Section 4.2.
Proofreaders of the Publications Office will read through the manuscript and prepare it for typesetting.
The proofreaders must have an overall view of the work. They will aim to understand the structure of the text in order to apply the rules laid down in this style guide. Too frequently they are obliged to work on individual sections or pages, which means that they lose the thread of the subject matter.
Any problems arising during this preparation of the manuscript will be notified to the author service.
