Capstone Multilingual Resources on the Doctoral Capstone Form and Style website

If you are a multilingual capstone writer, the following resources may be helpful:

  • The Doctoral Multilingual Writers Kit is directed at doctoral multilingual students who are working on their final project, doctoral study, or dissertation. This kit contains tips and resources to help multilingual doctoral students navigate their final written document.
  • In a 2-part webinar series, capstone multilingual writers learn practical tips and resources to write in U.S. academic English to ultimately help with capstone completion. Part 1 includes following faculty and document expectations, following the expected rhetorical structure, and using Doctoral Capstone Form and Style website resources. Part 2 includes developing skills around scholarly voice, revising in general as well as revising for sentence-level grammar, proofreading, and additional Doctoral Capstone Form and Style website resources.
  • The Grammar and Mechanics pages on the Form and Style website provide explanations and examples of some of the various elements of English grammar and punctuation that capstone writers often have questions about.
  • The SMRTguides for Grammar Checks and Strategies may be helpful for identifying and revising grammatical errors and for improving scholarly voice:
  • Grammarly software can help identify and revise for some sentence-level errors. This is not foolproof, as it is just a computer software program, but it can be a useful tool in the revision process.
