Writing an undergraduate critical review—or a postgraduate literature review—can be a daunting task. Critical reviews often require wide reading and synthesis of ideas. Our editing service provides you with the assurance that your complex analysis of the literature will be presented logically and appropriately, with correct grammar, spelling and punctuation.
Critical reviews—and literature reviews—are commonplace in academia. However, critical reviews are approached differently depending on the field of study. Critical reviews for the Humanities and Social Sciences—such as history and English critical reviews—are different to those written for disciplines such as psychology, medicine, law or business. The common feature of critical reviews across all disciplines is that extensive and accurate referencing is required. Critical review editing ensures that your essay is referenced correctly and consistently, and follows the language and style guidelines of your university or institution. Further, our team of specialist editors ensure that you receive targeted feedback to improve your academic writing, giving you valuable advice that can be applied to future assignments. Whether its engineering, economics or English, we can help you succeed with your critical review.
Writing a critical review is a complex task. It involves wide reading (or reading of a set list of texts), critical thinking and sophisticated synthesis before you start writing.
In a task that requires higher order thinking—such as writing a critical review of literature—it is crucial that your ideas are presented with clarity and grammatical coherence. Our editors are specialists in the nuances of language and can ensure that your work adheres to the correct academic conventions. Further, we can provide feedback about how effectively your argument is sustained and identify generalisations that are unsupported.
And given the importance of correct referencing in a critical review, it is beneficial for postgrad students that Capstone Editing’s highly qualified and experienced essay editors can ensure that any referencing style is presented consistently and accurately in a document.

I want to thank Dr Lisa Lines for the invaluable assistance she 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. Lisa proved herself to be a highly skilled, professional and trustworthy editor. I highly recommend her services to postgraduates and academics seeking a professional academic editor.
I would confidently recommend the editorial services of Dr Lisa Lines. She is fast, capable and professional. Dr Lines identified a number of places in which the expression and clarity in the grant was 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 Dr Lines represent a very worthwhile investment, and I intend to utilise her 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. Dr Lisa Lines is one of the best. I have never received less than a High Distinction in any subject since using her 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 Dr Lines to students and academics alike. Thank you Lisa.
