Non Fiction Book Editing Services

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

Non-Fiction Book Editing by Experienced Editors


Whether you plan to submit your non-fiction book to an agent or publisher or intend to take the self-publishing route, it’s vitally important to have a well-structured manuscript that is free of spelling and grammatical errors. Your book may be your own work or the work of many authors, and it represents many hours of time and effort. Therefore, it makes sense to present it in the best possible way.


Any manuscript will benefit from professional non-fiction proofreading and editing. Many publishers and agents are reluctant to accept manuscripts unless they have been professionally edited, so having a non-fiction editor edit your work can be very valuable.

Capstone Editing provides high-quality non-fiction book editing services for all types of non-fiction manuscripts. We can help with everything from substantive editing, where we edit for style, document formatting, consistency, grammar and spelling and the logic, clarity and flow of your completed manuscript, to proofreading, where we ensure there are no remaining errors before publication.

Even if you take the self-publishing route, you should still consider professional non-fiction proofreading services. Our non-fiction book editors are among the best in Australia and will ensure that your manuscript is edited to a high standard.

Timely Non-Fiction Book Editing Services for All Writers


When you choose Capstone Editing to edit your non-fiction work, you can be confident that your book will have the competitive edge required to be noticed in the increasingly competitive world of publishing. Our experienced non-fiction book editors ensure that your work will be:


  • structured logically, in line with the standard requirements for major publishers in your field
  • free of errors in grammar, punctuation and spelling
  • edited in the required style and tone for your genre and intended audience.

Our editors will return your edited manuscript with appropriate formatting and referencing (if required). Some non-fiction books are the work of more than one author. If this is the case for your book, your editor will ensure the language used throughout is consistent. In addition, they will check and improve your manuscript for structure and logical organisation.

Editing examples

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.
