What is Different about Journal Article Editing?


Journal articles come in many forms, including original research papers, literature reviews, position papers, technical papers, scientific papers, case reports, review articles and, more rarely from the perspective of the professional editor, letters and research notes. Each field, and indeed each journal, has its own set of conventions and requirements for scholarly writing for publication. Journal article editing guarantees that your paper correctly and meticulously follows all relevant language, style, referencing and formatting guidelines, and that all your ideas are clearly and succinctly expressed in line with the requirements of the journal. The services of a specialist literary editor, highly skilled in journal article professional editing, are certain to give you the best chance at publication.

Why Hire an Academic Journal Editor?


So, do you need an academic journal editor or you're looking to find a book editor? We would say that most academics could benefit from having a professional editor go over their work, and here’s why:

  • We will help you spot all the minor mistakes and typos you’ve missed.
  • We ensure that your argument is logically structured.
  • We make sure your article adheres to all formatting and referencing guidelines in your chosen field and journal.
  • We give academics with English proofreading as an additional language access to new opportunities and help them develop the quality of their work to ensure their English skills don’t hold them back.
  • We increase your chances of having your article accepted at first submission.
  • We can give you confidence in your writing.
  • We also provide helpful tips and feedback you can implement in your future writing.
  • We save you plenty of time compared to editing and proofreading the article yourself.

In short, if you’d like to publish your journal article, article editing services are essential.

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.
