We all know that research writing is a type of writing that involves gathering evidence from different sources with the help of research. And then using that evidence in order to explain an argument or idea. 

Oftentimes, it has been seen that research writers struggle to keep their writing simple and easy for the readers. This is because of the complexity of the arguments/points they are addressing in their writing.  

Fortunately, that’s not the case now, after the introduction of paraphrasing tools. These tools paraphrase the given text in a simple manner by changing complex words with simple synonyms. This will allow research writers to quickly simplify their writeups for ease of understanding of the readers. 

However, there is a huge variety of paraphrasing tools available which makes it difficult for users to find the best one. In order to ease this process, in this article, I am going to explain the five best paraphrasing tools along with their pros and cons.
