Here is a very useful and comprehensive checklist that you can use when you are performing a peer review, i.e. when you’re reviewing a document created by another fellow technical communicator.
The list is prepared by tech writer Peg Mulligan.
Complete all sections of this checklist during the document’s peer review. (Someone other than the writer should complete the checklist.)
Plan on spending at least one full day on the peer review, perhaps longer, depending on the size of the document.
The peer review checklist involves completing a copy edit, completing a content edit, and then meeting with the writer to discuss your suggestions.
If you can think of any additional editing or proofreading suggestions, please feel free to add your tips in the comments. Thanks in advance for your help.
