Welcome to the Doctoral Capstone Form and Style Website!

Capstone Writing Clinic

On Tuesday February 26, 2019, the Walden University form and style editors will be hosting the first Capstone Writing Clinic. The purpose of this clinic is to prepare students for the capstone writing process and help them advance in writing regardless of their current capstone writing stage. All of the sessions are designed to help students write, reflect on their writing, edit, or prepare for the next stage of the capstone.

During this one-day event, students will learn about the transition from coursework to writing the capstone, how to use the writing templates, tips for self-editing and being prepared for the form and style review, and ask questions of an editor panel.

For more information, visit the Capstone Writing Clinic page or contact

Doctoral Capstone Form and Style

Welcome to Walden University Writing Center’s Doctoral Capstone Form and Style page.

This website houses resources for students throughout the development of the doctoral capstone (dissertation/doctoral study/project study). Dissertation editors in the Office of Academic Editing focus on the form and style review as well as preparing students for doctoral capstone writing.

The doctoral capstone project is a vehicle for students to conduct significant and rigorous research that will add meaningful content to existing knowledge and foster growth in the field. These pages contain links to useful information that will help students writing the doctoral capstone study, as well as prepare the final document for final approval stages (Form and Style, Final Committee Overall Quality, CAO Review).

In addition to the resources on the program-specific pages, there are also webinars available through the Writing Center Website on preparing for the form and style review, using the doctoral capstone template, and writing each of the main areas in doctoral capstone studies: the introduction, literature review, methodology, results, and conclusion. Check out the archive to view recordings of past sessions.
