What makes Paperpal Copilot better than other AI tools?

While generic AI writing tools like ChatGPT fall short of meeting the unique needs and expectations of scholars and researchers, Paperpal Copilot stands out as a trusted generative AI companion for academics worldwide. Here are seven reasons why you should choose Paperpal Copilot as your AI academic writing companion. 

1. We safeguard your research

Your data never leaves our servers, which ensures it is always safe from misuse and correctly attributed to you. You also own the copyright for content you produce using Paperpal, which implements strict security measures. Unlike other generic generative AI tools, Paperpal will never use your content to train our AI.

2. We offer extensive academic writing support

Built on 20+ years of STM expertise, Paperpal Copilot has a deep understanding of academic writing conventions. This means that unlike other AI tools, Paperpal can understand academic context and deliver precise outputs along with language checks that improve your work, while retaining entities like technical terms, references, abbreviations, and non-English words.

3. We eliminate unpredictability

Generic AI tools often offer plausible but unverified, biased, or made-up facts that can be misleading or cause misunderstandings. Paperpal’s AI is trained on published and verified scholarly articles, so you get more precise, reliable results.  

4. We have benchmarked prompts

Most AI tools require you to first master how to write prompts to get the desired outcomes. Our intuitive prompts, tried and tested by experts, remove this pressure and give you the best results in one click.

5. We put you, the author, in control

Paperpal supplements and supports the writing process without overtaking your role as author. Unlike other AI tools, we encourage authors to take Paperpal output as a starting point and refine and rewrite AI generated text to express ideas in their own unique style and voice. This ensures authenticity, preserves research integrity, and minimizes the risk of unintentional plagiarism or being tagged by AI detectors.

6. We motivate you to write better

Paperpal generates ideas, outlines, and templates to help you overcome the dreaded writer’s block. Unlike other AI tools, it goes a step further and explains suggestions and provides writing tips to help you convey your research effectively so you become a better writer over time.

7. We are available on Word and Web

You don’t have to restrict yourself to working online, with Paperpal Copilot you can harness the efficiency of generative AI even in MS Word.
