Author proofs

Output from typesetting in the form of page proofs sent to the author for checking (a matching copy will likely be sent to the publisher for simultaneous checking). It is common for authors to receive two sets of proofs: first proofs and second (or final) proofs. Today the author may not receive a hard copy but instead gets a PDF of these proofs, which are not the same as printer’s proofs.

This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup.
