At this link, find two or three things that stand out to you as particularly helpful:

Walden University (2019). Doctoral Capstone Resources. Retrieved from https://academicguides.waldenu.edu/doctoralcapstoneresources.

The Academic Guides website (https://academicguides.waldenu.edu/academicskillscenterhome) has many useful guides, including links to the library, the writing center, the career center, and more. Bookmark the site for further exploration. Among hundreds of resources, you will find pages that cover how to make full use of Word, becoming an independent scholar, time management, and reading skills. Also note the section that presents information for Capstone students (https://academicguides.waldenu.edu/ASC/capstone/home).


Post two or three links and explain to your peers how you can use the links and resources. If you have taken the time to watch a PowerPoint, listen to a recorded webinar, or study a set of suggestions, please let us know what you learned.


You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
