We understand the power and importance of the written word and how clarity, style and logic deliver the best results. Our consultants are all English language professionals. They use their knowledge and experience to understand every client’s needs and to help ensure that all written communications are professional and persuasive, and presented to secure the most competitive advantage.

Academic ethics

Copy-Writing subscribes to internationally recognised editing protocol relating to academic writing, and in particular associated with theses and dissertations. We do not write original academic content for you; we also do not rewrite academic content so that it complies with specified scoring on plagiarism checkers like Turnitin. It is important that higher degree candidates and academics publishing articles and papers have done their own research, thinking and fundamental writing. We do not provide services that infringe on this requirement.

We also do not write academic essays or take tests for our clients. Furthermore, in terms of our writing services, we only copywrite and write for business clients (largely marketing copy) and do not sell or promote any academic documents that can be presented as original work.
