Papertrue! True! True! True!
My experience with was great. I came across their site from the high ratings. And the high ratings proved to be true. Once I got onto their site, I was immediately helped by a Rep, a live person, who helped answer my questions and walked me through the process. That was a big plus! And as a first timer, I got a discount or free edit. That was another plus! And the transaction was quick and easy. The turnaround time was also fast, delivery was on schedule and on time as specified. Another plus! My editor was also great and very helpful with comments, notes and suggestions. And when my document was completed and I had to ask a question to my editor, the Customer Service Rep was quick to respond. They escalated the matter so that my question would reach my editor and my editor would give me a reply directly and quickly. And my editor did just that. That was a major plus! Overall, thumbs up on great Customer Service and Editorial service. I would recommend them and look forward to working with them again. Thank you!
More than I had hoped for!
Did two jobs with PaperTrue and I'm highly satisfied. In one of the jobs I had some questions regarding their proposed changes and they immediately dug into it and explained why they had chosen certain expressions instead of others and what the differences were. That's really more than I had hoped for! And their chat-people are very alert - and good fun, too!
Very trustworthy and extremely efficient
I had an academic document proofread by the papertrue team. They not only corrected numerous grammar and spelling issues, they also advised on certain expressions according to my target audience. And the best, they did so over night... extremely fast, extremely good, and trustworthy service. Will be coming here again for the next publication.
Even my tutor can not find these errors
Thank you for editing my document on time. The editor pointed my attention to my commonly made mistakes; missing words, incorrect spelling and grammatical inconsistencies throughout the document.
I was happy to receive both a tracked and a clean version of the edited document.
I will happily recommend PaperTrue to my friends, and I will myself come back on a later occasion.
Excellent Service, Highly Recommended
I have used PaperTrue for several editing projects for my website. They have edited small and large projects for me. PaperTrue offers great pricing with no hidden fees, they always deliver on time and I love the fact that they provide a clean version and a corrected version showing the recommend changes. I highly recommend this company for anyone looking for quality editing services. They have great communications, project completion dates are given when ordered and they have consistently met the deadline. I am extremely satisfied and I will remain a loyal customer.
Great service, great company!
We are a Spanish advertising agency that work for international companies. Usually we need our copies to be reviewed. We trust Papertrue for doing this, they are always super-professional and always deliver the documents on time. I recommend them 100%
Improvement in structure, language and formatting
My cover letter was corrected very professionally, with very detailed comments and explanation. Smaller issues like my unclear description were changed shortly in a revision version, with a very smooth communication. I have learned also from the formating. For further CVs I will still consider their service, because the cover letter has to be formulated for specific job description. I don't do massive job application.
Quick 24 hour turnaround
Paper True was quick and effective. I needed a 24 hr turnaround and they provided me edits to my resume that became the talk of the town among my team. Everyone loved how thorough the edits were. Thank you Paper True for helping me so quickly and effectively.
Aaron is the best editor!
I live in Zürich and needed to have my cooking book "The Food Is Ready" , edited in english before I publish it. So I decided to sent the manuscript to Paper True and I can only tell that I was really impress when I saw the work they did. Aaron my Editor has correct the language and grammar errors. He has done a terrific work improving phrasing and consistency of my book. If you are looking for a serious company I can really recommend Paper True. And "they are allways there available if you have any questions"
An amazing job!
As a sixteen years old Danish girl I must admit finding the right editor was hard, but I found THE one ;)
Amazing service and a welcoming chat on the website! I love the detailed comments and feedback on the tracked document :) They really did a good job at making my debut novel a lot better while still keeping my style of writing!
Much love from Denmark <3

        The Introduction Chapter of a Dissertation

        • calenderAug 05, 2021
        • calender 5 min read

        As the name suggests, the introduction chapter acquaints a reader or evaluator with the contents, main argument(s), and scope of a dissertation. It is the first official chapter of your dissertation and is placed after the table of contents. Think of it as a preview of the whole dissertation, a glimpse into what the project is all about. 

        Simply put, an introduction chapter should 

        • Introduce and contextualise your research topic 
        • Clearly state the focus of your study 
        • Specify aims, objectives, and method of study 
        • Justify the value and relevance of this research on a broader level 
        • Provide an overview of upcoming chapters 


        When to write the introduction section 

        Although the introduction is the first chapter that will be read, conventionally, it is written towards the end of the writing process. This is because your research, as you progress, will change course—the methods you use may change, your hypothesis or original research question might become broader or narrower, or you might change its conceptual framework altogether. 

        Since the point of this chapter is to be introductory (of course), you’ll want to be accurate in letting the reader know exactly what your project entails. Writing the introduction chapter in the end along with the abstract and conclusion ensures that all three sections, and the dissertation itself, are consistent in their ideas and arguments. 

        Moreover, this saves time. Had you written an introduction beforehand, you’ll be forced to make modifications or rework it altogether. 

        If you choose to, you can draft an outline first, just to keep you on track, and keep revising it as you go along. (This is also an interesting way to track how your project has developed.) 

        Keep the original proposal you wrote as a reference, because the components of the two will overlap. 


        The components of a dissertation introduction 

        The background and context 

        Your aim is to generate interest in your research topic and explain why it’s important or timely for this topic to be researched on. Start with a relevant or historically significant incident or news statement. Cite important literature along by way of introduction, so your reader can make a connection to established (possibly even seminal) work in the field. 

        By setting up a context with this, you’re easing a reader into your topic of study and gently leading the way to the core of your research. 

        Don’t go overboard with this, though; you have the rest of the dissertation to do that. 

        All you need to do at this stage is to give some basic information about your topic and field, just enough for the reader to know what’s coming up. Use keywords and terminology important to your field so they have more clarity.


        The research problem 

        After setting the stage for the reader, write about how this context relates to your topic of study. In other words, spell out where the research problem lies in the context you’ve set.

        This will lead you to write about the focus, topic, or questions that you have specifically chosen within this broader area of research. Once you have laid that out, clearly state the main argument or hypothesis that you have set out to test as a part of the study. 

        After this, write about the specific parameters you have set out to answer or analyze the question or problem. This will tell the reader what the scope of the project is, with regard to factors like time frames, geographical areas covered, specific themes, and disciplines your research falls under, and so on. 

        When you clarify the scope of your research, you should also be clear about what your dissertation will not cover. Address the limitations of your current research. This defines the scope further and helps future researchers continue what you’ve begun. 


        The relevance of your research

        As you’ve already identified the context of your dissertation, this is the apt time to explain the rationale behind the dissertation as well.

        The reason original research is given utmost importance in the academic world is because it is one of the most reliable ways of furthering knowledge in a particular field. That’s why it’s important for you to argue its relevance at the onset. What larger value does your research serve (other than finally getting that long-awaited degree, of course)? 

        Why should future researchers and the scholarly community pay attention to this work? What broader social, political, or scientific applications does your discovery have? Why does your research matter? 

        These are some questions you should aim to answer. 

        Draw a connection between the rationale and the context you’ve laid out until this point. A reader, based on this information, should be able to understand how your project has taken the direction it has so far. 

        An overview of the dissertation 

        Once you’ve introduced the context, the research area, the specific research question, your hypothesis for the study, and the rationale behind that choice, explain how you will go about the research. State what you aim to do and the objectives to be achieved. 

        State the methods you have used in the study and briefly summarize its results. 

        You will have noticed by now that this structure is simply a summary of the entire dissertation. If you’ve reached this point, well done! Anyone reading your dissertation will be clear about what they are going to encounter next.
