Are you writing a research paper? Do you feel confident in your ability to edit and proofread it? Unfortunately, most paper editor don’t receive much training, if any at all, in academic writing. You’re expected to figure it out yourself. This usually results in a lot of stress and uncertainty about writing and submitting research papers. Wouldn’t it be much nicer to be confident in the quality of your work, to hand in a piece of research you know is high quality?
That’s why hiring a research editor is a crucial part of the editing process. Not only can a research paper editor tidy up grammar and spelling mistakes but they also bring invaluable experience and knowledge about how research papers should be structured and how language is used in these contexts. Besides, you’ve already done the hard part yourself. Why not let someone else take over now?
A research proposal is usually the first specialised document produced by a potential or new postgraduate student, and its success provides an entry point into academia. No matter in which field you are writing, and what research project you are proposing, your research proposal must be clearly written to demonstrate both your proficiency in your field and the potential to produce an original contribution to it.
At the postgraduate level, a good research proposal will also become the basis of your Masters or PhD dissertation. Research proposal editing assists in making this eventuality seem plausible to both the peers and senior academics who will read it.
For academics, research proposals are often a crucial part of funding application success. Capstone Editing has vast experience editing all types of research proposals for varied research projects in all academic disciplines.
The editing process has several stages, from the more extensive and overarching edits to the fine tuning of word choice, spelling and grammar. We offer all these editing services for research papers, but how do you know which one you should choose? Here’s what we advise:

I want to thank Capstone Editing for the invaluable assistance they provided in editing my PhD thesis (following the ‘Guidelines for Editing Research Theses’ as per University of Adelaide requirements). The final edited thesis was perfectly expressed and did not contain any typographical or grammatical errors. This was affirmed by my thesis being accepted without corrections, which I believe is rare. I am especially grateful for the care taken to avoid changing any of my ideas in what was a complex work. In reviewing the edits and comments, I felt at all times that my work had been treated with the greatest sensitivity and respect. Capstone Editing proved their editors to be highly skilled, professional and trustworthy. I highly recommend Capstone Editing to postgraduates and academics seeking a professional academic editor.
I would confidently recommend the editorial services of Capstone Editing. They are fast, capable and professional. My editor identified a number of places in which the expression and clarity in the grant were able to be improved. Her careful editing saved me valuable time and identified details I had missed in my own revisions. She was careful to ensure that any changes to the expression didn’t change the meaning, and clearly noted where there may have been ambiguity. In today’s competitive research environment, I honestly believe the services of Capstone Editing represent a very worthwhile investment, and I intend to utilise their services again with future grants.
A good editor may be the difference between a pass or fail, or more positively, a High Distinction or a Distinction. A good editor will not only attend to spelling, grammar, syntax and structure but will also read and understand the point of the assignment and thus recommend changes in accordance with the specific intentions of the work. A good editor is clear and precise. A good editor offers suggestions towards increasing clarity, that is, what you think you are saying may not be what you have said. This is all the job of a good editor. Capstone's editors are among the best. I have never received less than a High Distinction in any subject since using their services.
Dr Lisa Lines was recommended to me by a colleague as an expert editor in her field. It is my pleasure to assert that her editorial services were well worth the investment made. Not only am I grateful for the numerous corrections to errors that I had missed, but I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to learn from her expertise. While I hope to implement some of these skills in the future, I will certainly engage her services again. Her attention to detail, her professionalism and her courteous manner in dealing with my work were greatly appreciated. Dr Lines formatted my thesis in such a way that it is both easy to read and navigate. It was reassuring to have someone trustworthy to help me in the final stages of my PhD. I recommend Capstone Editing to students and academics alike.
