During my academic years, I was often faced with the need to write scientific papers, and citing sources correctly was important. Then I turned to the service, which provided scientific literature as examples for proper writing. These examples became my teachers and inspiration. I studied the structures, techniques and styles used in these works, and this helped me develop my own competent writing style.
