Whether you write fiction or non-fiction, chances are, you’ll find that at some point, a certain level of research is required in order to ensure that you provide your readers with an adequate level of accuracy. If you are a non fiction writer, fact checking is often an on-going and essential part of the information you provide to your readers or subscribers, and when writing fiction, it provides your readers with a more realistic plot, background or character, therefore enabling you to convey a more authentic storyline with authentic characterisation.
The Advantages of Research Services for Writers and Authors
Although research is an essential part of being a professional writer, extensive research can be both time consuming and laborious and this can sometimes stifle creativity and hinder your progress. Of course, most writers will already be great researchers, but oftentimes research can involve hours of time that are simply not available.
Our professional research services are organised and carried our by our expert research team, who will provide their services depending on your exact needs and requirements; saving you time and stress, whilst providing you with accurate and relevant information in a form and format that suits you best. For example, whilst some writers prefer a comprehensive collection of data (newspaper articles, transcripts from various recordings, historical documents, useful websites, spread sheets, etc.) other writers would prefer a more summarized account of our findings. We will work with you throughout your project to find out exactly what you need, and when you need it. You can also rest assured that all information will be double checked for accuracy. We also provide research services for screenplays, television and theatre scripts, through fact checking, to ensure that viewers get the most realistic account of events and you avoid any potentially embarrassing errors.
Transcription Services and Additional Research
As well as providing general research for our clients, we can also transcribe historical documents, medical discussions, seminars, conferences, research interviews and recordings for ease of reference. Not only that, but we are also happy to transcribe any interviews you may have conducted yourself with industry experts, in which we can also provide additional material on each subject discussed during the interview. For example, if in one interview, the respondent mentioned a particular report or event, we can collect additional information and documentation on the subjects discussed, in order for you to gain a greater and more in-depth understanding of the topics and subjects discussed.
If you would like to know more about our transcription services for writers and authors, or you are interested in some of the research services we can provide to authors and writers, why not get in touch? We are available seven days a week and are always happy to help.
