After a book manuscript has been accepted for publication, it will go through copyediting, proofreading, and indexing. What are the goals of copyediting? What should authors look for in page proof? What makes a good index? Jennifer Comeau, manager of the Editorial, Design, and Production department at the University of Illinois Press, will discuss the goals and processes of these crucial stages of book production.
