From writing the story, printing out the first draft to finally receiving a box of bound galleys, the journey of writing a book has been a tremendous process. With bound galleys, it will be the first time seeing the story in physical form and gives a chance to reviewers, magazines and libraries in advance for final publication. These are sent out to ensure timely reviews of newly published works. And bring another step closer to final book publication.

The galley proof in printing nowadays has been simplified. Now that everything is electronic, the process is less time-consuming. However the final manuscript text will not be published until there is one more author review and the reason why galley proof is still being used today. It is the pre-publication version of an upcoming published book that is a printed, perfect bound book. Galley proof stage will remain as the final review by the author before publication. Majority of the journals provide electronic galley proofs to the corresponding authors who have the option to make suggestions using an online form or in a separate pdf document that all the author corrections noted. It is expected to check with all the co-authors for their final review on any changes before the final revision will be made.

Galley proof is normally presented to the author as one of the last steps before manuscript publication. This proof contains the clearly marked text or corrections that indicate the changes made. It is then the author's last chance to accept or reject whatever changes or minor revisions made and he will hold responsibility to answer any production related questions. Most authors after thorough review on the gallery proofs feel happy and excited in the final publication of their book.
