Writing requirements

  1. Your paper must be in line with the customer’s requirements. It is important for to understand all the requirements before you start writing.
  2. You must always meet the client’s deadline. Mostly, deadlines cannot be extended. In case you think that it may not be possible for you to deliver the paper within the specified deadline, you should immediately contact the support team and request them to reassign the paper to another writer. Therefore, you are required to have a good plan for your writing time.
  3. The paper should also adhere to style requirements, particularly if you are dealing with citation styles such as APA, MLA, and Oxford among others.
  4. You need to write every paper strictly in line with the customer’s academic standards.
  5. Copy-pasting work is prohibited. In case you find it necessary to use another author’s work, make sure that the work is paraphrased and referenced accordingly.
  6. In academic writing we do not use short forms and clichés such as; eg, ie, etc. So avoid them. Always use paragraphs to elaborate points as opposed to the numbering system.
  7. Avoid bold letters unless for headings inside the essay. Do not use Bold, italicizing and underlining (BIU) at the same time, it is repetition!

  8. Do not mix fonts/uppercase and lower case.
  9. Always proofread your paper and go through it at least 2 times before submission so as to ensure the question is thoroughly answered and errors are detected and struck out. Your paper will be run through turnitin.com for plagiarism detection and you will be notified of the results.
  10. Always incorporate research—work such as journal findings in your research in meaningful ways to help make a point. Don’t just repeat what others have said, but do something with that information—use it to make your own argument. Remember, this assignment is not a research summary, but your own analysis and argument—your goal is to deepen and add to the ongoing conversation. Also, be sure to credit your sources accurately and ethically.

  11. Organization—Does the order of your paragraphs make sense? Does one topic lead into the next? Using a thesis statement, clear topic sentences, and transitions will help to move the ideas in your paper along smoothly. Outlining the paper ahead of time will also help achieve clear organization.

  12. Proofread carefully to avoid typos and misspellings. Be sure to follow the recommended style format for in-text citations and your works cited page/Reference page. Polish the essay for consistency of verb tense and tone.

  13. Begin your paper by telling you reader what it is you are setting out to do, i.e. your subject, purpose. Your final paragraph should highlight whatever point(s) you wish to make based on what you have written so that your reader has a sense of what’s important about what you’ve written.

  14. Avoid first person (“I believe,” “in my opinion,” ets.). Normally use active voice (“Paine expressed contempt” instead of “contempt was expressed”). Use past tense when referring to what happened or what was said in the past.Cite the source and page from which you happen to quote, paraphrase, or from which you draw important information; if it is clear from your text what source you are citing, the cite only the page; otherwise cite author’s name and page. Use parenthetical references for your citations. Again remember that All publications should be dated after January, 2009.

  15. Always proofread your paper and go through it at least 2 times before submission so as to ensure the question is thoroughly answered and errors are detected and struck out. Your paper will be run through turnitin.com for plagiarism detection and you will be notified of the results.
