Terms and Conditions
PhD Assistance is committed to guide the researchers in their research work as per the commitment. We understood that the researchers' perception may vary from one to another due to which we provide unlimited revisions on whatever we commit as per the initial communication with Admin team (Refer our work flow process).
Custom-made Research work
- We completely research on every topic that we are assigned to and we are not involved in selling any ready-made research work. We educate the client at every stage (if inquired by the client, at separate cost) and the research work that we are committing is to be used as a reference and not to be submitted as it is.
- Whenever a project is committed, the experts will be allotted within 24 hours and the work will be started within 48 hours (This may vary for shorter deadline projects. i.e., for projects less than 72 hours, the project will be started within 2 hours of project confirmation). If we have to stop the project and refund the payment, the request must be given within 24 hours of the project confirmation.
Every committed project is assigned a project confirmation code #15xxx000 during which you will be confirmed about the following
- Type of work
- Number of pages/words
- Payment status
After project confirmation, every mail from you (to either experts 'team or admin team) must have project confirmation code at the subject line to track the same.
Any payment details/new additions to existing project must be sent only to admin team (info@PhD Assistance.com) mentioning your project confirmation code.
Any technical updates/queries/comments/recommendations must be sent only to experts’ team mentioning your project confirmation code and it should not violate the initial commitment in terms of length and requirement. We highly appreciate your cooperation not to send any payment details to experts' team.
If you require specific formatting and referencing guidelines to be followed for your university/department, you must provide us the same during the project confirmation. It is expected from the client to provide one-time instructions and to stand by that during the course of the project since changed requirements will cost you additionally.
- During the project confirmation, the client/researcher will be informed about the deliverables clearly. If there is any additional requirement requested from the client/researcher, then the experts team reroute the client to admin team for confirmation. (Refer work flow process)
- For example, if topic selection is confirmed with us, the topics alone will be provided to the client. If description/supportive information is required or an abstract is required along with the topics, then the client can opt for other services (Topic with Abstract, Topics with Description for Topics and so on)
- 100% Advance for Assignments / Course work / Research Proposal / Questions and Answers / Manuscripts / Conference paper / Seminar paper / University level paper
- For Medium Level research work for less than 30,000 words: New write up/Rework - Two Installments: The above statement means, after project confirmation and your first draft is sent to you, if you have any queries/corrections on your first draft, we are open to unlimited revisions. But you are expected to make second installment in parallel to carry on your balance 50% work. Based on the delay in balance payment receipt/ primary data /secondary data / book sources receipt, the timeline will vary for which we are unable to take responsibility.
- For High level research work for more than 50,000 words: Three installments (40% Advance and balance amount (60%) in two installments for which work will be dispatched accordingly)
- The client has to take responsibility for extension of timeline if the payment, approval of previously dispatched chapters, primary data delay is on client end.
We strictly stick to the word/page count after a project is confirmed and any changes in the initial requirement will be considered as a new requirement as negotiation in this regard is not entertained. During the project, we analyze the data/book sources as provided by the researcher/client. If there is any changes required in the data, we can definitely do the same but at an additional cost since expertise need to spend additional time on your project. Primary data / Secondary data / Book sources needs to be provided by researcher/client which is clearly communicated during the project commitment. Primary data needs to be provided in Excel sheet format or Interview transcripts format. If hard copy of the primary data is provided, then data entry charges apply. If audio recordings files are provided for qualitative analysis, then data conversion charges apply.
After project confirmation is over, if extra pages/words is demanded to add, additional payment applies in accordance with the requirement. Deadline committed, is the number of days/weeks only after we receive the payment confirmation. We provide 24/7 call support at the admin department only and not for the technical department. Any technical calls/calls related to work status can be answered by the experts’ team between 9am to 6pm Indian Standard Timings (IST) only. 24 hours is the minimum timeline to address any minor technical replies whereas for the major technical queries/replies, the timeline/deadline for addressing the major technical replies / queries will be informed to you within 24 hours.
