Hello to you all,

I'm studying how technical writers perform document
reviewing, and I'd be interested in finding out how you do
reviews at your site.

- Do you have a specific reviewing process? What does this
process entail?

- What is the scope of your review? Who reviews your documents,
are these people local, and about how many people are involved?
Do you have review meetings? If so, how long do they last?

- Do you perform reviews using printed copy, or do you have an online
tool which enables you to review? If you have an online tool, what
kind of format does it allow? For example, can you review WYSIWYG
documents, graphics, charts, or multimedia?

- Do you track any information about these reviews? For example,
comment severity, number of hours reviewers spend reviewing, etc.

Rather than clutter the list, please respond to me directly and I'll
post a summary of feedback I receive.

Thanks for your help,

--Julianne Edmunds
