This site takes the top spot, even though it may not look like much at first sight. Looks can be deceiving, and in the case of StudyCorgi, it’s a good thing. What lies behind its simple look is a well-organized free essay database that has a vast number of examples on virtually any academic topic.
Clean and modern look. Wide selection of essay examples to choose from. Additional features like a built-in citation tool on every sample’s page. Detailed information on every work available in the database.
Possible lack of categorization. You can only jump to a specific topic and see samples listed in it, or view the database as a whole.
This website is a true wonder among other databases listed here. IvyPanda Free Essays operates as part of a much bigger platform. That means you get access to a truly enormous database, with highly detailed categorization.
Massive database, with the number of subjects alone exceeding 450. Detailed categorization with the ability to search samples by subject, topic, work type, number of pages, and word count. Citation tool available on every page.
The only thing that kept us from listing IvyPanda in the top spot here, is a few minor inconsistencies and typos across the database. These inconsistencies are understandable though, considering the sheer size of the sample collection.
The following entry offers access to its database of essay samples and helpful writing tools. The only catch is that you have to be registered to take full advantage of all the website’s features.
A broad selection of essay examples with a unique quality rating system. A considerable number of topics and subtopics to choose from. Helpful tools built into the database that can check writing quality.
Full sample texts (as well as writing tools) are only available for registered users. Some website sections can get a bit confusing, with work types and essay topics found together.
This database has a minimalist design with a lot of content. It has quite a wide selection of categories and topics to choose from. To be placed higher on this list, this website could benefit from some extra features, like the services above.
Simple and straightforward design. Great selection of topics and subjects. Ability to bookmark samples in the library.
Bookmarking functionality and complete texts of all examples are available to registered users only.
UKEssays is one of the older services on our list. It’s been operating since 2003. The database of essay samples it offers includes an impressive selection of subjects with thousands of works available.
An abundance of available subjects. Detailed information on each sample, with the ability to cite works in a specific style.
An outdated design that makes it difficult to navigate the website. As a result, the page layout gets confusing because of the many buttons and links.
Straight away its clear that IPL has a lot of essay samples, as well as topics. It almost feels like the website creators didn’t want to tire their visitors with an elaborate interface, or anything extra and just leave them with one-on-one examples.
There's no shortage of essays on the IPL database. There's also a references section that allows you to look through special collections, newspapers and magazines, and works for kids and teens.
Only registered users can view samples in full. The wall of links with sample titles and categories may seem overwhelming when you first enter the website. There's minimal information about the examples themselves, including a lack of previews on the main page.
This free paper samples database focuses strictly on business and related topics. It makes the website more targeted to a specific audience. This, in turn, enables the service to deliver more relevant content instead of trying to please everyone.
The website offers a deep dive into the sphere of business through its extensive collection. It touches upon niche aspects, making this resource a perfect fit for its audience.
There is not much available in the way of additional features. Business Essay offers plain text samples along with lists of used works.
Here’s another website that focuses on a specific niche. As you can tell from its name, the core subject here is nursing and healthcare. Structurally, the website is similar to some of the other entries on our list. This isn’t exactly a bad thing, as it successful achieves its goal of offering informative and relevant samples.
A wide selection of free essays on all the aspects of nursing and healthcare.
We can’t help but notice that the website feels a bit derivative of our list's other services. It's not that big of a deal, as it works fine, but maybe a redesign and the addition of extra features would help.
The website states that it’s been “improving writing skills since 2002.” That’s quite a statement and a number to admire. However, there are quite a few bones to pick with this free essay database.
A tremendous amount of experience, as the website has been operating since 2002. Every sample comes with links to other related topics that the current work refers to. You can download or save essays on the website.
The majority of features are locked behind the need for registration. The selection of topics is relatively poor, with no other ways to categorize works in the database.
We’d say that this website is a direct competitor to number eight, Business Essay, on our list. And while it does some things better (EssayBizLab looks a bit more fresh, in our humble opinion), there are shortcomings, too. Still its worth checking out for those interested in the business sphere.
More updated look and layout.
Noticeably less content compared to other databases.
