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

        Essential Research Tips for Essay Writing

        • calenderJun 18, 2019
        • calender 5 min read

        The biggest reason why essay writing seems so hard is because most students solely focus on external rewards like scoring high grades or to earn the professor’s approval. This fixation on rewards and validation is the problem. It makes writing less fun and significantly harder.

        In this series of blog posts, we’re going to lay out a precise process which will help you write brilliant essays. We’ll walk you through how to plan and conduct research, how to organize information and determine your own stance, how to plan and structure your arguments, and finally how to write and revise your essay. Keep reading the PaperTrue blog to gain ground of the English language and improve your writing skills.

        This post, the first in our series on essay writing, will focus primarily on planning and conducting research that meets the requirements of the essay topic. Let’s get going:

        Understanding the assignment

        Figure out what is it that you are tasked to do. Look out for information words like “Describe,” “Summarize,” “Illustrate.” These words ask you to explain what you know about the subject. For example, if your subject is the French Revolution, your essay topic could be, “Summarize the main events that happened during the French Revolution.”

        Relation words, such as “Compare,” “Relate,” “Apply” mean that you must explain how different ideas or concepts are connected. An economics assignment could ask you to “Compare the Great Depression with the global financial crisis of 2008.”

        And finally interpretation words such as “Assess,” “Analyze,” “Evaluate,” “Prove,” “Argue,” “Support,” “Justify” are asking for your opinion, which you should support with concrete evidence. If you’re asked to “Analyse the historical context of Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace” you’ll have to read the source material, and also do some additional reading related to the subject matter so that you can put forth a thorough argument.

        Talk to your professors

        A student consults her professor about research for her academic essay.

        Aspects of the essay that are given special attention to during evaluation are the thesis statement, organization, support and development of ideas, your insights into the subject, and the clarity and style of your writing.

        Once you understand the question, don’t set off straight to writing. There’s the all-essential research you must carry out before you put pen to paper. Before you start researching the question, consulting with your professor about the given topic will give you an insight into the subject that you wouldn’t find anywhere else.

        The internet can misguide you sometimes

        The web is definitely a treasure trove of information. But you’ve got to be careful these days – there’s a lot of unverified, biased, and outright false information floating out there. So there’s a reasonably high chance you’ll end up sabotaging your own work if you don’t verify your sources.

        Where do you find reliable resources?

        Going to the college library, exploring archives, referring to academic journals, and talking to experts are some legit ways of conducting academic research. Trust us, you’ll be able to compile your resources faster this way, with all the pertinent information in one place. Relying on random online sources will probably get you faster results, but going through tons of unrelated and unreliable information will also end up prolonging your research process.

        Now, let’s jump into the most reliable sources for academic research:

        #1. Digital libraries

        With digital libraries, you potentially have an infinite number of resources to access and cite in your essay. These make the best source for researching, as they are accessible anywhere, at any moment, even with the most basic smartphone. This means you can refer to online books, images, videos, and all other educational content without having to leave your desk.

        Digital libraries have quick access features to the latest information and data collections, which allow you to perform sophisticated searches. And with intuitive search engine technologies, the level of sophistication is only growing enormously.

        The best online libraries you can access any time now are Google Scholar, JSTOR, Project Muse, LexisNexis, ResearchGate, and

        #2. School / College Libraries

        Well, libraries remain the most sought-after place for academic research. With thousands of books available; well-cataloged by field and topic, and easy to find on an online catalog, these knowledge centers are the ideal place for collaborative research. You’ll also find the recommended reading lists for your course syllabus which also contain books vetted by your professors.

        What’s more, once the class is given an assignment, you’ll have the sincere bunch of students huddled up in the school library. Now that provides you with an avenue to exchange ideas, thoughts, and opinions about the assigned topic and bolster your research with combined efforts.

        Also, seek the librarian’s help. They can guide you to exactly what you need. One look at your essay topic, and they can bring out the most relevant academic journals you can apply in your essay, which otherwise you’d have no clue about.

        #3. Expert Interviews

        This one works for every topic under the sun. Interviewing field experts is not only a great way to add to your knowledge, but it’s also the smartest way to learn about professions and professionalism, to gain insight into career choices, and to network for your future.

        Once you’ve determined the appropriate person you want to interview, you must have a clear idea of the purpose of your interview. Write it down in one or two sentences. Clearly define what you want from the exchange. Do your background reading and literature search first; then you’ll have a specific, concise list of questions to ask the expert.

        #4. Archives

        Archives make for an interesting place for research because they include materials that can’t be found anywhere else, such as photographs, personal letters, diaries, artifacts, all of which could be explored to add depth to your essay. If you’re willing to walk an extra mile for the sake of research, these specialized and rare objects can add an edge to your essay.

        How to evaluate a source for quality and accuracy

        Conducting essay research is more than just collecting sources. In order to do proper research, you must also evaluate the quality of the sources you find.

        A student sits at a desk, comparing sites on their laptop. They are evaluating their research sources for credibility.

        #1. Trust library sources first

        You can start your research with, say, Google or Wikipedia, but it should not end there. Be skeptical of sources you find outside of the school library. It’s always safer to rely on internal sources as they keep getting updated along with the school curriculum.

        #2. Choose sources written by experts in the field

        How do you know the source you’re referring to is legit? Check the writer’s credentials on the document you’re referring to. If the “expert work” you’re looking into is by someone who has a doctoral degree like a Ph.D., Ed.D., etc. you can safely say the source being referred to is legit.

        #3. Look closely at the text

        Source evaluation is a lot like detective work. Once you have verified the author credentials, check the date of publication (if it’s recent enough for the information to be current), and the writing style; poor spelling and grammar are an indication that the source may not be credible.

        #4. Pay close attention to website URLs

        For any research you’re carrying out on the web, check the domain address. Some domains such as .com, .org, and .net can be purchased and used by any individual. However, the domain .edu is reserved for colleges and universities, while .gov denotes a government website. These two are the most credible sources of information.


        Taking notes

        A student types on their laptop and takes notes in their notebook. Taking notes is an essential part of research for academic essays.

        Passive reading or solely relying on memory can lead to a mental mess later on. Promptly note down any vital clues related to the subject topic you come across while researching.

        An essential part of researching, note-taking allows you to organize facts and bits of collected information. The notes you prepare will prove immensely valuable in the next stages of essay writing. These help you collate the information you’ve picked from a diverse set of sources into a proper structure and avoid any information overload. You’ll also find the answers and opinions to the research question in the process. You’d realize as you go that notes usually form the framework of your final essay.
