Galley Proof: Effectively Works in The Final Publication

Joseph Coupal - Sunday, May 31, 2020

Galley proof has totally evolved as everything changes from manual to electronic processes. Now that everything is electronic, this old process has been simplified and less time-consuming however, the final manuscript text is still not published until there is one more author review. And the ultimate text is galley proof which is still being used today.

The galley proof stage is the final basis that remains as the final review by the author before publication. Today, it is easier since electronic galley proof is provided to the author itself and has the option to make suggestions using an online form or provide a separate pdf document that has his corrections noted. The journal’s editorial and production team will present a galley proof to the author which contains notes or questions from production staff and editors that need to be addressed and provides the author with clearly marked text indicating any changes made. At this point, only crucial changes will be made. If there is a co-author of the journal, the approval on any changes will be secured too. Although the current system of checking and revising galley proofs works fine, it is as efficient as it is expected to be. The author has a final chance to accept or reject such changes, suggest minor revisions and to answer any production-related questions.

There are helpful tips in proofing to remember though. The author will ensure to scrutinize rigorously the galley proofs from author names and affiliations, typo errors, etc. and include only the most critical and necessary changes at this point. The author will follow close attention to comply set of deadlines. For any publisher, a delay in returning revised galley proofs will get into the way in the publication of the paper. This new technology is an evident improvement in the publishing process.

Print on Demand is a cost-effective way for single book printing services. This is because the print on demand service is a book distribution approach which goes hand and hand with high speed and effective digital printing.

Print on demand providers like us here at The Country Press maintain databases of books on behalf of their publisher clients. Normally book publishers submit books to the print on demand suppliers in the form of two files for each book, one digital file for the book interior, and another file for the cover. Once the publisher signs off on the proof, the book is listed by the Print on demand throughout its distribution channels including booksellers, other offline and online retailers, chain stores, and even some exporters. As such the title is now listed for sale to all wholesalers and retail outlets. If an interested buyer finds the book in an online listing, an order is placed, and if no physical stock available at the retailer’s warehouse, an order is sent to the distribution chain to the print on demand system.

In addition, with print on demand it makes it unnecessary to invest enormously amount of money in printed books before a market for the book is established. Fortunately, it eliminates the huge economic risks involved in book publishing. The print on demand contributes highly in eliminating the need to keep books in inventory as it allows the book without substantial sales to stay in print. And for small publishers and self-publishers, print on demand book distribution has swiftly changed the publishing process.

Launching your book is no easy task. You need to do some diligent preparation months prior to the launching of your book. If you want to launch your book with strong word of mouth and sales right out of the gate then print galleys will do the trick. Distributing some galley proofs for advance reading is one way of promoting the book. The more work you will do for promotion before the publication date the more people will already know about it and that means more sales to come. Galleys or advanced reader copies are printed versions of the book that serves as give away for free to reviewers, bloggers, distributors and other industry contacts. A galley proof is essentially a product sample.

However, the book is not done yet though there are sending out review copies about three months earlier before the book launch date. It means that they send out galley proofs for review. Galley proofs are so famous because they are created for proofreading and copy-editing purposes. In printing and publishing, proofs are the preliminary versions of publications that are meant for review by authors, editors, and proofreaders often with extra-wide margins. These are proofs that are uncut and unbound or others electronically transmitted. It is also used for promotional and review purposes.

It is a standard-setting that in order to get a professional book review, galley proofs must be printed way ahead about months in advance. Most publishers do, they have the book printed well in advance of the publication date in order to distribute at trade fairs, festivals and via sites such as good reads approximately about 6 months before the publication date. And like in another promotional strategy, the more work you do to promote your work before publication date, the more people will already know about it and that means more sales are seen.
