This edition, updated by Arlene O'Sean and Antoinette Schleyer of the American Mathematical Society, brings Ms. Swanson's work up to date, reflecting the more technical reality of publishing today. While it includes information for copy editors, proofreaders, and production staff to do a thorough, traditional copyediting and proofreading of a manuscript and proof copy, it is increasingly more useful to authors, who have become intricately involved with the typesetting of their manuscripts.


  • Maintains the same user-friendly presentation as the original work.
  • Serves as a training tool for newcomers to mathematical publishing.
  • Includes a glossary.


Mathematical publishing professionals and authors who submit manuscripts both electronically and nonelectronically.
