* These prices represent the vast majority of order rates; yet in some niche areas, we are able to gain a higher rate for you, while a few other areas attract a lesser rate.

At Academic Knowledge, we're proud to secure some of the best rates of pay in the industry for the writers we work hard for. Established in 2003, we have a proven track record of obtaining fees and paying our researchers regularly and on time.

We're delighted to have procured a whopping £15 million in fees for researchers since 2009. With 1 in 10 writers working with us full time, and 1.5% of our researcher’s invoices being over £5000 a month, we're honoured to be a long standing institution within the writing industry.
