Publishing a Critical Edition

Once the aforementioned steps are complete, editors check page proofs and page references. The page proofs undergo two individual sight collations before the book is compiled and indexing is finalized. The indexing is proofread once again before a PDF is created and sent to MIT Press to be checked by editors there. If the editors at MIT Press find anything they think might be a mistake, they send the book back to The Santayana Edition to request a final check of the text before it is printed.
