Proof version


Recommended Posts

So I'm in a slightly unusual situation. My writing sample is forthcoming in a prestigious journal, and I've just received the proofs. Unfortunately, they sent the proofs in hard copy (weird, I know). The article is going to be published in the next issue of the journal, but I think that might be in late December, which means that it won't be in time for apps. I was hoping to use the proofs as my WS, but I'm reticent about asking for a PDF, as I imagine they have reason for not providing it.

So the question is: does it make a big difference if I use the proof vs using a word file I have of it? There are only a few minor changes recommended here and there, such as changing "to which" to "by which". The real thing is that it'd be nice to have the header and the formatting looks much nicer.

Edit: And on a related note, if a place asks for 20 pages, is 28 too long?
