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 academic editor, highly skilled in journal article editing, are certain to give you the best chance at publication.
Capstone Editing’s highly qualified and experienced editors are perfectly placed to provide you with the finest-quality journal editing available. Every year, we provide editing for hundreds of academics, helping them to achieve publication success.

If your article is already in excellent shape, perhaps because it has had the benefit of professional copyediting previously, you may be able to use our Proofreading service. This service will polish your document, ensuring internal consistency and flawless presentation, following journal guidelines. Our Proofreading Service is only available for those clients whose documents do not require a complete copyedit. Please contact us to find out of this service is right for you.
In addition to the services outlined above, Capstone Editing is happy to offer academics tailor-made editing solutions. Perhaps you only need your article edited to meet the referencing and formatting requirements of the target journal, or your article has been previously edited and only requires a final proofread. Whatever your editing needs, we can help. For a quotation, simply email us with your instructions and the article for editing.

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.
