Abstract: The recent webinar was a paper presented in the 8TH Scientific CONFERENCE OF Garmian UNIVERSITY entitled "Language and Literature between Actuality and Contemporary Requirements" on July 27, 2020 and published in Journal of University of Garmian . It aimed at Investigating Editing and Proofreading Strategies used by Koya University Lecturers. Editing is related to “copious” from the Latin root that means plenty or abundance . Editing is preparing a piece of writing for publishing by correcting, commenting and removing some parts of it for others. However, In Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary (Hornby, 2000: 928) proofreading is defined as reading and correcting a piece of written or printed work Making only minor changes, additions, or deletions to a document, rather than major rewriting. In brief, Editing and proofreading a piece of writing can help make meaning clear, and clarity makes it easier to understand.
In Germany, late 15th century, was the time printing replaced script. Proofreading stems back to the 15th century. In 1439 A.D. by Gutenberg, authors should have taken responsibility for proofreading.
