Draft review vs draft revision?

Looking over the newly-posted list of 2022 releases, I noticed that some were listed as being in “draft review” and others in “draft revision.” Is there a difference? If so, what is it? And do these come before or after the copyedit stage?

I don’t technically need to know, obviously, but I’m curious about how things work.

(And I apologize if this has been addressed before. I did use the search function, but wasn’t able to find what I wanted to know.)

I am just guessing but I would assume that ‘draft review’ is looking over the draft to make sure it’s good. And ‘draft revision’ would probably be making some alterations to the draft itself.

From an older thread:


Thank you, that’s exactly what I wanted to know. I don’t know why it didn’t come up when I searched.
