Every year, Capstone Editing edits countless conference papers, both at the proposal and presentation stage. The nature of conference paper editing changes depending on the goals of the client. When editing a conference paper proposal, the focus must be on demonstrating a clear vision for the presentation, its relevance to the conference topic and its potential to engage an audience. When editing the presentation itself, the primary focus is on its clarity and effectiveness as a spoken-word document and its importance as a scientific or research paper demonstrating significant new findings in a specialised field.
Conferences make up an important part of academic participation and success. Not only do they offer an opportunity for students and experts to present significant new research to an audience of like-minded peers, but they also provide the platform for important networking and future research exchanges. For the editor, conference paper editing cannot be separated from consideration of the target audience and how best to reach and connect with that audience.
Capstone Editing specialises in editing for academics and can ensure that the ideas presented in your paper are engaging, lucid and plausibly argued, offering the very best exposure of your work to a highly specialised and academically rigorous audience.
Our highly qualified and skilled editors can provide editing at all stages of the conference paper process. From the initial proposal, to the development of an engaging and well-structured paper for presentation as well as the preparation of your paper for publication in conference proceedings, all academics can benefit from professional editorial assistance. We can even help you to convert your paper for publication as a book chapter or journal article.
Whether you are presenting at a plenary session or on a panel, or giving a workshop or poster presentation, our editors will ensure that your research is presented for maximum interest and effect. Capstone Editing’s experienced and specialised editors help you to produce a conference paper that is engaging and articulate as a spoken-word document and that meets all the requirements for presenting significant research to a specialised audience.
Capstone Editing offers a number of services to assist with your conference paper proposal, presentation or publication.
Our Premium Copyediting service is designed to suit the needs of most of our clients. Our editors will check your document for any errors or inconsistencies. This service incorporates language editing (including spelling, grammar, punctuation, style, logic and consistency of content and structure) and any additional requirements for publication in conference proceedings, including referencing, formatting and word reduction.
You can easily submit your conference paper online to access our Premium Copyediting service.
Two further services are available for those conference papers that require a more specialised level of intervention from our experienced academic editors:
You can email your document to Capstone Editing to receive personalised rates for our Substantive or Heavy Editing services.
If you are happy with your conference paper overall but feel it could benefit from proofreading, then this service may suit you best. This service does not include a complete copyedit, but Capstone Editing’s proofreaders will ensure your paper is polished, consistent and perfectly presented. Simply email us with your document attached to enquire about our proofreading service.
Capstone Editing also offers tailor-made editing solutions for academics. Perhaps you wish to convert your paper into a journal article or book chapter following the conference presentation. For these and other tailor-made services, please email us for a quotation, including your instructions and document as attachments, as prices will vary.

I would like to thank Lisa 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.
Lisa has edited several journal articles for me. Her thorough command of language really helps in making sure that the article is well expressed and free of errors. Lisa works 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 Lisa’s services again, including for a book project I have coming up. I highly recommend her 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 Dr Lines and her team 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.
