The last job over the dp.com desk this week was highly interesting, due to the complexity of the material being proofread and improved. It was the opening section of a major and highly detailed work on type 1 diabetes, requiring the proofreader to actually check the cited references on several occasions in order to ensure the wording was correctly reflecting the intended meaning. For example, the differences between polydipsia, polyphagia and polyuria as well as cytokines, chemokines and cytoxic and gaining an understanding of non-HLA loci genes that code for – among other things – protein tyrosine phosphates non-receptor type 22 (PTPN22). And that was just the intro.
Really looking forward to chapter 2.
