My writing workbook Writing Your Journal Article in Twelve Weeks: A Guide to Academic Publishing Success (2019) requires you to write information and answers in various boxes and forms in the book. If you want to preserve your book without marks, however, you can use the pdf forms below (currently, only full-page forms are posted below; none of the partial-page boxes are posted although I list them below). They are listed according to chapter.

Week 11: Editing Your Sentences forms, including Calendar for Actual Time Spent Writing This Week. To run the Belcher Editing Diagnostic Test in MS word, go to John T. Sherrill’s website.

Then, follow the instructions in “Week 11: Editing Your Article” of Writing Your Journal Article in Twelve Weeks for running the test and evaluating the results. The Sherrill Macro doesn’t work without the writing workbook. There is one update for using the test in Windows 10: you must look for “Record Macros” not “Create Macros” in the fifth step on page 325. Carlos Alfredo Barreto Suárez also created a free program, called BDT_latex, that automates the Belcher LaTeX Editing Diagnostic Test for documents in LaTeX, a document preparation system used in the disciplines of computer science, engineering, chemistry, physics, and sometimes in economics, psychology, and political science.
