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 Literature Review of a Dissertation

        • calenderAug 20, 2021
        • calender 5 min read

        A dissertation is not done in a vacuum; it builds on the foundation of research that has already been carried out in your field. So it’s important to contextualize your research and situate it within a larger body of knowledge. This is precisely what a literature review does; it provides an overview of existing research in your field. 

        But this is not simply a summary of the history of research. It goes deeper than that — it is a critical evaluation of this history, an opportunity for you to identify knowledge gaps, identify recurring themes and methods of study, and, most importantly, a chance for you to lay out your line of thought. A good literature review should give your evaluator or reader a clear idea about the state of the knowledge in your field so far. 

        The question you seek to answer here is this: How did your study of existing research lead you to study the research question you are working on, and why does this trajectory matter?


        The steps of writing a literature review 

        Step 1: Identify and select relevant sources 

        In the vast world of research, it’s quite likely that you’ll read hundreds and thousands of papers, many of which you may not even end up citing! As you get lost in this ocean of research, it’s important to activate your critical thinking and identify papers, books, or even specific arguments that are directly related to the research question you’re exploring. Only the most crucial of these will end up in your final dissertation. 

        Maintain diversity and balance in the sources you’re using. Refer to books, journal papers, other literature reviews (yes, you can do that!) 

        Step 2: Organize your literature review 

        As you survey literature, you’ll begin to realize that there are many categories or parameters you can use to structure the dissertation. Let’s go over some ways you can strategize this order. 

        1. Chronological: Perhaps the most obvious approach for evaluating research, writing from a historical lens will cast the spotlight on how your research topic developed over time. 
        2. Thematic: If you have identified recurring themes within the literature you’ve studied so far, you can also present them in the same way. 
        3. Methodological: If your topic has been studied from various approaches, you can use this method to compare and contrast what has been done so far. 


        Step 3: Identify a knowledge gap 

        How did your study of existing literature lead you to pursue this particular issue? 

        Depending on whether or not you need to write a literature review, you can choose to keep this segment brief or extensive. In either case, check your university guidelines for details about word count and number of chapters. 

        Explicitly state what kind of knowledge your dissertation aims to fulfill. Does it 

        1. Fill a knowledge gap in existing literature? 
        2. Propose an alternative methodological approach for an existing problem? 
        3. Reexamine or revisit existing literature from a new perspective?
