 Welcome to the Doctoral Capstone Form and Style Website!

 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.
