Hire an Academic Writer

Academic writing is also known as scholarly writing and is an impersonal essay intended to reinforce or challenge concepts or arguments. It is typically seen in books and book reports, conference papers and academic journals, research papers and dissertations. A content developer or a content writer who specializes in academic writing is known as an academic writer.

What Academic Writers Do?

There are a number of professionals across varied industries who have the necessary technical skills but may not have the writing skills needed to publish a report, an essay or a thesis. This is where an academic writer comes into play; an academic research freelance writer takes up writing jobs to aid these professionals. They are writers who understand the client’s requirements and research on the given topic. With inputs from the client, they draft an academic piece of writing. The most common fields of academic writing are humanities, applied science, social science, formal science and natural science.

There are four types of academic writing that an academic writer undertakes. These are descriptive, analytical, persuasive and critical academic writing. In descriptive academic writing, the academic writer describes facts or information, like in a summary or report. In analytical academic writing, the writer analyzes the facts and information and reorganizes them into different groups. It usually shows relationships between two or more pieces of information and is used to compare or assess the information. In persuasive analytical writing, the academic writer tries to persuade the reader to agree with the writer’s point of view. The writer identifies the most convincing argument for and against the topic and tries to draft the content in a way that the reader is swayed to the writer’s side. In critical academic writing, the academic writer critiques two or more points of view on the given topic and provides his inputs on the subject matter. The writer analyzes different interpretations and develops his own arguments and provides evidence to support it.

Academic writers typically work as freelancers and take up different assignments in their areas of specialization. No matter for which field you are looking to find the academic writer for, there are many professionals signed up on Guru – one of the best websites to hire freelancers.

When you hire an academic writer, make sure you freelancer can:

  • Conduct thorough research on the assigned topic.

  • Develop a strong narrative.

  • Deliver original, non-plagiarized content.

  • Use appropriate citations as per the client’s requirement.

  • Format the content as per the client’s requirement.

Qualifications of an Academic Writer

It is ideal that your freelancer has the following skills:

  • Knowledge of common referencing styles such as APA, Harvard, Oxford

  • Excellent oral and written communication skills

  • Proficiency in computer applications such as Microsoft Word, MS Excel and PowerPoint

  • An eye for detail

  • Analytical skills and ability to think strategically

When hiring an academic research freelance writer, make sure the writer has a specialty in writing about a topic in that field. For example, a writer of academic content for science may not be best suited for a book to be written for the English language.

Before hiring an academic writer, it would be helpful to see their portfolio and check whether their capabilities match your requirements.

Benefits of Freelance Academic Writer

A freelance academic writer can be hired for both small and big writing jobs. Since these freelance writers work round the clock, they can turn around the job much faster.
