What are the requirements for the test paper?

To become our writer, you will have to submit your application to us and get approved. With the application form, we ask you to provide a short test paper, or a sample of your previous writing.

For you to make sure your submitted paper meets our expectations, below you'll find complete requirements as to how your paper should be written.

General requirements

In your paper, be it a previously written paper or a completely new test paper, you should demonstrate:

  • profound research skills
  • fine academic language
  • pristine formatting skills

In a word, your submitted paper should be a nice piece of academic writing.


The topic would be What is Plagiarism and How to Avoid It?.


In your paper you should demonstrate your formatting skills. All papes by our writers are accomplished in APA/MLA/Harvard/Chicago citation styles. We require your paper done in APA format.

At the end of this article you'll find two download links -- one for APA Guidelines and the other one for APA Sample Paper.


A 300-500 words paper is enough. However, if you believe you should write more, do write more. Lesser word count is unjustified.


Please review our evaluation checklist, we entitled it the Recommended Assessment Criteria (RAC). We will evaluate your paper according to the criteria listed in the RAC and to the topic/volume/format requirements. However, if your paper isn't 100% compliant with the checklist, that's fine.
