The content was very good and explanation was excellent just there was a slight problem with instructors accent but don't worry you will get used to it no time but the course is excellent and helpful
It was really helpful to me, I hope it will be useful to all researchers who are intensively working for publishing papers in journals. I thank all course instructors who handled the video sessions.

From better understanding Academia to creating my own checklist, this has been a wonderful journey of learning, thinking and applying.Though there is a lot gained from the MOOC on "How to Write and Publish a Scientific Paper" by École Polytechnique and Coursera, this one equation is there in a separate corner of my head-Valid+Reliable+Rigorous=ScientificThanks to Prof. Mathis Plapp and all the PHD students for your sublime guidance and indispensable mentorship.

par Kali R•
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!
par Janzaib M•
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.
par SHWETA M•
I enjoyed going through this course and completing every assignment, Thank you for providing this support and guidance as a Ph.D. scholar writing a research and review paper is very important for me but I always used to wonder from where to start and where to end, but now I am clear in my thoughts mapping how to achieve the goal of publishing the paper in a peer-reviewed journal.

It is an excellent course for anyone who would like to make a publication. Also, very useful tools were provided for this purpose. Highly appreciated and recommended.
My only comment to improve this course is that the requirement for someone to review your submissions, so you will pass the course.
I was worried as there is a chance that no one would review my submissions.
par Dr. B J•
Thank you team, for putting the whole course together. I found it useful and motivating. I would like to thank every member of the team. Thanks a lot.
One small correction: in the congratulatory letter a line reads :one of the reason" it should be "One of the reasons".... since we are picking out one out of many, the noun should be in plural.
Thanks once again team
par Jomana A•
This was a very concise but informative course. The videos covered many of the issues I was confused about regarding research publications, & the projects substantially improved my writing as well as my understanding. I would like to thank all the instructors for their great explaining of the topic. It's one of the best courses I've taken on Coursera thus far.
par Krishna D•
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.
par Soumik B•
The content of the course is well planned, to the point and covers all the basic aspects a research scholar requires to know to write a research paper. All the PhD scholars presented in a lucid manner. I specially liked Arno and Heloise's presentations as they were crisp and easy to follow.
Thank you guys it was a great learning experience.
par Jorge A S M•
It is a very good curse however, some points can be improved: 1. In some activities I do not exactly what you are being asked to do. Please be very explicit when requesting an assignment. 2 The web links for some readings do not open automatically. Other readings were in french. Please it is recommended that all readings be in english.
par Aymeric F•
The class is very nice but the two mains work are peer-reviewed and the quality of peer-review is sometimes not good at all. Participants of the class just want the certificate and don't read your work at all. It's a little bit sad. But there is a lot of good information and I was very impressed by the quality of the works I reviewed.
par Ali R•
Well organized and general course for anyone who want to write a research paper. All the six instructors conveyed the lectures beautifully. One more good thing was that video lectures were not lengthy. They were average 4-5 mins long. And then the assessment is a good way to memorize what we learnt. More power to you.
par Rajkumar. M•
Excellent course which I would suggest for research aspirants who are really looking for publishing quality articles.

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.

par Onur A•
to get the most you need to take notes during the videos. thus you can write final exam easily. what you wrote to the final exam is the what you get from this course. knowledge is scattered during the course and not well organized. still if you take notes you can organize the info in your head.
par Younis R•
The Course provides all the relevant guidelines from writing a paper to publishing it. The course has been created by PhD students for PhD students and researchers. The structure of the course has been well crafted keeping in view the difficulties faced by a researcher while writing a paper.
Extremely useful for research scholars and faculty members in academic institutions. The course speaks more about the framework for building a scientific paper for your community. I loved it. I thank GOD, the course educators, and Coursera team for offering this course to me. love you guys
