I would like to ask community how do you deal with unsatisfactory typesetting. I have extremely bad experience with 2 journals: i) Scientific Reports of the Nature family and ii) Physica Status Solidi B.
After the acceptance, my manuscripts went to production, and I got proofs to read. They were horrible: the text was mutilated, the references skewed, latin, greek, small, bold, italic---these words have no meaning for the production team. I sent them proofs, insisted on seeing the text again, and sent them proofs again. After all, the papers were published. Only small portion of the corrections was taken into account. I am ashamed in front of my colleagues for such an unreadable text.
What worries me most is that many equations are wrong and it is not even possible to decipher their meaning. What can I do in this situation?
Notice, the accepted answer to the related question suggests to write to them back and complain until the problem is fixed. I am skeptical about this because there is no pressing reason for the editorial/production team to fix typos within any given time-frame. At some point they will just ignore you.
