Hi all,

The organisation I work for wants to start publishing research white-papers.

I'm part of the review board who will assess these documents before they're
published and I'd like to ask your advice on where editing of same would be
best deployed.

I have one such white-paper in front of me now and I have to pass it on to a
suitable content reviewer. The reviewer will read it, pass it back to me
with comments/suggestions and I then return it to the author. The author
addresses the comments/suggestions and we publish the paper (or not, as the
case may be).

My question then: where in the process would a
grammar/punctuation/omit-useless-words check be most useful? Before I pass
the paper to the reviewer? Or just before the paper goes out the door here?
Or at both stages?

Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
