You're at the last step before submitting your paper! You've gone through every step of the process, and if you compare your paper to your document plan, the paper should have everything that is in the plan. You should have made any major changes to the document in the reviewing or editing stage, so at this point, it's a matter of checking for small errors before you hand in the paper.

Tip 1: Read the paper out loud at a speed that someone else could understand you. You will be able to hear if there's a typo or error, even if your eyes tell you that everything is fine.

Tip 2: This stage is your last opportunity to make sure that your paper truly reflects your knowledge and understanding, but resist the temptation to continue making small changes to the document beyond a reasonable amount of time. At some point, make the decision that the paper is done.
