Do the sources help to reinforce the ideas you went into the project with, as you outlined in your statement of research purpose, or have you yet noticed that your understanding of the topic has begun to shift in some way?

One goal of your research plan is to build a strong working bibliography. Carrying out systematic research and keeping careful notes on your sources will make developing your works-cited list or bibliography easier… The process of research, of consulting a number of credible sources, pushes you to learn more about your hypothesis and make it more precise.
Andrea Lunsford, The Everyday Writer (135)
After reading The Everyday Writer (135-136), create a working bibliography of sources (both scholarly and popular) related to your chosen topic. For scholarly sources, be sure to check the University of South Carolina library databases, such as Academic Search Complete, but also use Google Scholar to ensure that your sources have been widely cited by other experts. Popular sources can be found on databases like Nexis Uni and others. See here for a list of all databases UofSC subscribes to. Search widely and find as many things as you can. You must find at least three reputable scholarly sources (such as academic journal articles or book chapters) as well as three credible popular sources (such as magazine articles, newspaper articles, or online articles linked to reliable organizations) related to your chosen topic.
After completing this initial research, write a short 200- to 300-word reflection that describes your research process by explaining the following: What databases did you use? How did you find these sources? What keyword searches did you use? What library database did you use to find your popular sources? How did you decide which seemed most relevant and applicable? Do the sources help to reinforce the ideas you went into the project with, as you outlined in your Statement of Research Purpose, or have you yet noticed that your understanding of the topic has begun to shift in some way?
At the end of your short reflective essay, include a bibliography that lists each source you decided to keep (for now), using proper MLA style citation. (See “MLA Style for a List of Works Cited,” EW 471-479).
This assignment will help you begin to collect possible sources to use in your Research Essay. As you continue to research your topic, you will continue to add to your Working Bibliography. Keep track of all your sources, even those you don’t use, because at the end of the semester you’ll turn in a full bibliography of all sources you consulted.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
