Many thanks to the Course Team.
The content, as well as the presentations, were rigorous.
The course was very beneficial to me.
Now, I've my Personalized Research Paper Writing Checklist. This tool may help me take a step back on my work, in an organized way. This could help me categorize more precisely what I have to check in terms of form and content when writing a paper. I built it based on the sequences developed in the course and adapted it to my domain interest. It will also be the tool to use for a process reviewing.
I appreciated the two assignments (Abstract and Checklist) in their two aspects: elaboration and pee-reviewing.
I appreciated a lot the methodology with which the content was delivered. Knowing that the process is iterative, I congratulate the course team on the choice of sequencing adopted ".
Best regards, Leila.

The course is basic but can really help researcher to start writing their paper. It also delve into the world of publishing and give insight from both researcher and editor point of view. While some of you might already taken other class or course about academic writing, there will always be something new to learn about and I can say that this course also offers it. Slight negative review on this course is related to the presenter's heavy accent and English subtitle that sometimes does not match the presenter's word

I'm reading this as an undergraduate student, going into my second year. I really feel that this MOOC, despite not being aimed at me, has taken my scientific writing skills to a new level. I have a much greater understanding of the purpose of references and the literature review - something that's not so obvious, as, before now, we've been repeating older experiences with expected results to practice as our lab techniques!

This is the best course I have ever taken on Coursera. It made me able to write a Research Paper for a Scientific Journal and currently my paper is in its refining steps. I often rewrite it and get it reviewed by my community. I need to say a special thanks to EPFL for offering this course and the instructors were quite rich and experienced in the knowledge of publishing that they shared.

The course has helped me understanding the basic research paper writing technique , aspects to be considered while writing a research paper. My favorite line from the MOOC has been "writing a literature review can be a political aspect." I never considered of these aspects while writing a paper and am thankful to the team for bring up such a great content.

I really enjoyed how the course is structured in the process of homework and classes. The course has a methodology that is becoming more complex and ends with activities that are really significant from the point of view of the researcher, either through his own writing or the analysis of the writing of the other.

The course can become more interesting. If it will give more examples related to the writing of the scientific paper. There are many pdf files which we can watch to know something about a scientific paper. But real paper writing is more useful for the candidate.

very useful, concise, and to the point.
unfortunately, sometimes the accent hindered meaning. also, the peer review could be challenging since some people are not fair.
besides these two, everything was beyond extraordinary.

All these times we have been searching for a journal publication checklist. Most of the checklists have different criteria and it was confusing which to adapt. Through this course, it helped us to establish our own checklist.
