The advantage of academic essay editing and proofreading for all students

All students face the pressure of meeting essay deadlines, and sometimes it’s just not possible to finish writing on your topic and find time to also carry out your own thorough essay proofreading and editing. Further, the relationship with your essay that you develop over the course of researching your topic, refining your ideas and crafting your arguments means that it is extremely difficult to step back and get the distance required to view your essay objectively as a whole. This is where our essay editing services come in.

Our academic experts provide top-notch essay editing and proofreading services to ensure that your essay is the best that it can be. Our comprehensive essay editing services will improve the document by correcting and standardising your grammar, language, formatting, referencing and more. In addition, our essay editing service packages include suggestions as to how you can make your academic writing even better in future.

All types of students benefit from expert academic proofreading services

Whether English is your native or second language, our expert academics provide essay editing services that can help you achieve academic success. Academic writing requires a very special skill set and demands a thorough understanding of many specific writing, formatting and referencing rules. For ESL students and mature-aged students returning to study after many years, the conventions of academic writing are often difficult to master. These students can thus benefit greatly from the assistance of our essay editors and academic proofreaders.

However, even high-performing native English-speaking students will find their work can be vastly improved through our meticulous editing, making it really shine. Tapping into the knowledge and experience of our essay editing and proofreading experts allows you to demonstrate your research and understanding of the material succinctly and ensure your arguments are well presented. If you require more information, view Dr Lisa Lines' video, in which she explains the advantages of essay editing and proofreading for all students, no matter the age or proficiency in English.

Our academic editing and essay proofreading services are of the highest quality but they are also affordable and accessible to all students due to our partnership with Payright and Humm, which allows us to offer interest-free repayment plans. Just give us a call to find out more about our budget-friendly proofreading and essay editing service!!

They have also been university lecturers and/or tutors themselves, giving them a deep insight into what markers are looking for when grading essays and assignments.

Our academic editors have applied this knowledge to editing and proofreading essays and theses from every university in Australia and New Zealand and from many other universities around the world. For flawless academic editing, we really are the best possible choice.

No task is too small or too large for Capstone Editing; we offer tailored editing and essay proofreading services for all types of documents: assignments, projects, major essays, papers, application essays, reports, critical reviews, proposals and annotated bibliographies.

Platinum Copyediting Service (Heavy Essay Editing and Proofreading)

Our Platinum (or Heavy) Copyediting Service provides students with an extra level of assistance.

The highest standards of academic integrity

Capstone Editing is strongly committed to academic integrity. All our essay proofreaders and editors strictly follow the Australian Standards for Editing Practice and university policies. We respect and comply with the restrictions placed on professional essay editing and proofreading. This means we don’t rewrite or restructure any part of your essay and don’t provide editing suggestions that alter your interpretation of the study material.

We also have a firm policy against editing plagiarised content. Plagiarism is a very serious academic offence, and we work hard to ensure that students understand what constitutes plagiarism and how to avoid it.

Editing examples

The following documents provide representative examples of our work for past clients.

Testimonials

I want to especially thank Dr Lisa Lines who graciously and expertly edited my thesis (editorial intervention was restricted to Standards D and E of the Australian Standards for Editing Practice). Lisa saved me from myself on numerous occasions and helped me to express what I was trying to say with clarity that my tangled prose often struggled to find. During my final journey in finishing, Lisa had been very patient with my few delays in not meeting the deadlines which I had missed sending in to her. Lisa has always been very professional and delivered what she stated. Since knowing about the company, I have recommended her to my colleagues and friends.

Dr Siew Mee Barton PhD (Business Information Technology) RMIT University

I spent many years working on my PhD and it was reassuring to know that someone like Dr Lisa would be taking it into her care and taking the pressure off by giving it the final once over for accuracy, consistency and of course to make it look nice. These things are not so easy for the writer to do when fatigue has already set in!

Dr Maria Giannacopoulos PhD (Law) University of Adelaide

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.
