Mainline Modeler and Model Railoading currently send paper proof - not digital - copies to the author. These are actual copies of the finished article with the text, photos, and drawings in place as it will appear in print. The author is asked to make any needed changes and return ASAP.

In professional science and engineering publising (and I imagine most other
areas) the author sees "proofs" of the semi-final copy and is asked to review
them and indicate any errors that may have crept in. Hundman at MM used to
offer this option (I don't know if he still does). Do any of the other magazines?
