Academic Writing Services – Beware the Paper Mill
The paper factory is the global industry based on the sale of academic essays to students. There are several ways in which additional papers are added to the paper mill; Here are three of them.
Essay Databases: Donate a paper to join.
There are a number of websites that store databases of tens of thousands of documents that can be searched and searched once they have been registered. These sites are sometimes free! Wow. But wait that they are not exactly free, first you have to contribute a trial by uploading it to the database. Now you can ask "What's wrong with that?"; Maybe it's an old essay that has already been marked. Well, up to a point you're right, but remember that these websites are commercial businesses and some are very profitable. The gain is obtained as a result of having all these documents in your database.
The free scanner against plagiarism
Currently there is a business that offers the free use of an anti-plagiarism scanner to verify their academic documents. Again, this looks great; something for nothing The process is once again an exchange, add your essay to our database and allow you to check for plagiarism. The first problem with this is that the scanner they offer uses a completely different method of evaluating the percentage of plagiarism than the Turnitin program used by universities. I recently submitted the same document to both scanners, the free one appeared with 5% but when it was scanned by Turnitin, the level went up by over 25% … Oops!
But that's not all. When you sign up for the service, note that you start receiving emails from a company that sells essays! A few clicks later and it is clear that they are the same company. So, the scanner provider that collects thousands of documents from students and academies also sells essays … mmm?
Free correction scam
Finally, there are ads that appear on websites like Gumtree that offer free review. Some offer to review a part of your document for free, but they insist that you send the complete document, why? Some claim that they do it in exchange for a reference, one that I know has been organizing this for at least two years, how many references do you need for heaven?
Others will do everything and do not even need a reference, an offer that seems too good to be true. One that I saw recently was written in frightening English and advertisers & # 39; they only claim that they were qualified because they were & # 39; a former resident of London & # 39; …. and probably a current resident of Lagos! When you send your document, you will be informed that you are & # 39; completely reserved & # 39; But by then it's too late they have already gotten their work.
This work will continue to be sold to others that I am afraid of. Then what to do? Well, you should certainly value your work, others do and see pound signs. Any website promoted on a large scale is likely to be part of the paper mill with a large database of students and academics & # 39; job. Once your essay is & # 39; over there & # 39; what happens to you is beyond your control. So my advice on this is that & # 39; small is beautiful & # 39;. Second, avoid & # 39; free review & # 39; offers. Proofreading is a very laborious task if done correctly and, frankly, no one would do it for free.
