Research Assistance, Inc., is the only
major research organization developed
in the earlier age, that has survived,
according to Art Steckel, national sales
director for Research Assistance, Inc.
Its purpose is not to write term papers,
though, but to provide research to the
persons writing them, he said.
UNL Chancellor James Zumberge
said he has noted a lack of student
interest in the companies, and hasn't
heard of any incidents involving stu
dents plagiarizing papers prepared by a
company in recent years.
Steckel said the company is strictly a
mail order business that caters to the
college student but also provides
services to businessmen. Research
Assistance, Inc., advertises in every
college paper that allows it about 75
per cent of those in the United States, he
Many employes who do research for
Research Assistance are graduate stu
dents earning extra money in their free
The cost of advertising in the Daily
Nebraskan is such that research sales
barely paid for the advertising last year,
Steckel said. Research Assistance, Inc.,
charges $2.75 per finished page.
Two other research companies adver

According to Steckel, there were no
major competitors in the research paper
market. Anyone purchasing a research
paper from Research Assistance, Inc.
must sign a waiver stating that he will
use the material provided for research
only and not for the finished class
project, Steckel said.
Research Assistance, Inc. has used
the waivers in court several times to
prove students agreed not to plagiarize
Research Assistance, Inc., recently
won a federal court case brought against
it by the Consumer Protection Agency of
the United States Postal System in Los
The agency contended, the material
was being provided to be used for the
finished product and that the company's
mailing permit should be revoked,
Research Assistance, Inc., said their
purpose was to provide research and not
