Document Formatting Services

Capstone Editing is in the unique position to offer academics a specialised editing service that fully meets their particular needs.

Professional Document Formatting Services

Writing an academic article, research paper, dissertation, research proposal or any other type of academic text is a huge achievement. It also takes a lot of work. Be proud of yourself for completing it! But just as you think your work is done, it’s time to format your document to meet all the appropriate standards. This can take longer than you expect and be more complicated than you think, especially since you don’t want to get anything wrong. Universities and academic journals care a lot about formatting, so take no chances. Instead of spending your own time and effort trying to remember all the formatting and implement it into your document, give yourself a well-deserved break and leave the document formatting to the team at Capstone Editing. You’ve worked hard enough to write this text, so let us take care of the last few steps and ensure everything is perfect. Use our document formatting services to finish off any academic text with confidence and accuracy.

What is Document Formatting Services?

Document formatting refers to the way your text is laid out on the page. This includes many different aspects, including typeface, font, spacing, margins, alignment, columns, indentations and more. That’s a lot to keep track of. And not all word processing programs are easy to navigate, which means many people don’t feel confident in changing any of these aspects of their document. Plus, it’s a time-consuming process that you may not want to have to do after all the time you’ve just spent on writing this piece. That’s where our document formatting services in Australia come into the picture. Academic journals editors and institutions often have strict guidelines on formatting, so ensuring correct formatting is a crucial part of the editing process before you can submit.

I would like to thank my editor at Capstone Editing for her thorough edit of my grant proposal. Her suggestions gave me better ways of expressing myself with clarity and (importantly for grant proposals) with fewer words! She provided detailed comments on her edits that helped ensure that we didn’t inadvertently change the intended meaning. I appreciated her attention to the details of formatting and nuances of meaning across the document. I highly recommend her to help improve the readability and clarity of academic documents.

Capstone Editing has edited many journal articles for me. Their editors' thorough command of language really helps in making sure that the article is well expressed and free of errors. They work very quickly and I have found it invaluable to have somebody format an article to the style of the particular journal. It is a massive time saver that allows me to move on to my next piece of work. I plan to use Capstone's services again, including for a book project I have coming up. I highly recommend Capstone Editing to academics wanting to save time and wanting to submit their work with the confidence that it has been thoroughly looked over and formatted to their particular requirements.

The fast, elegant and professional service provided by Capstone Editing saved me hours, days and weeks of work for which I am truly grateful. They worked to very tight deadlines and formatted, fixed and corrected my thesis so that I could submit it on time (and within my budget!) The editors who edited my thesis had phenomenal attention to detail and provided me with tremendously valuable feedback that improved the quality of my thesis. In addition to the usual material, my thesis had dozens of tables in both portrait and landscape format, a research study and case studies. My editors very quickly corrected and fixed all the material I threw at them and went beyond the call of duty to provide me with a beautifully referenced and immaculately formatted thesis. I am so appreciative of their advice and assistance.
