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.

It might have been a better option to conduct the class in the instructors' mother tongue with English subtitles, though concepts are well enough communicated. I am a Francophone and I still find it not easy to understand the English (having French translation in my mind.)
A good introductory class to have a first glimpse at the general context of academic publishing. Good general overview to rethink the steps of publishing plans for early stage researchers.

The lecturers cannot pronounce some words correctly. We can only understand them by subtitle.

Abordagem superficial. Eu esperava que os temas fossem trabalhados com maior profundidade.

Good course - light and instructive.

El curso en sí es para personas principiantes donde te dan información básica. No me ha gustado mucho que algunas tareas tengan que ser corregidas por otras personas que se apuntan al curso y no por los encargados en sí del curso, así como algunos artículos o información complementaria. Si estás empezando este es tu curso, pero si ya se tiene un poco de idea se queda bastante corto.

I find this to be very very basic advice on how to write a scientific paper. I can't even see where the "project" is coming, plus the strong accent of instructors makes it really hard to follow sometimes -- even with the subtitles. To make things even better, accessing the quizzes is imposible unless you pay for the certificate. I found the course disappointing.

The contains of the course is not really enough for improve the writing skill for scientific paper. Those advices mention in the video is common and that's it. No more practice or example to help the learner understand or apply that concept to their writing.

English of instructors wasn't very good.
I was expecting more info. and teaching methods on how to realy write and about plagiarism(styles like Harvard style, APA, etc....)

This course is rather superficial, it sadly did not provide practical tips that go beyond common sense.

O curso não foi feito para pessoas que não dominam a língua inglesa, de modo que foi bastante dificultoso cumprir algumas tarefas. Também devo acrescer que imaginei um outro tipo de curso, vez que sequer faço doutorado, ou seja, o curso não foi feito para mim. Nada tenho a reclamar das vídeo-aulas, mas estes pontos acima tratados me desapontaram. Talvez tenha sido uma falha minha não pesquisar acerca do curso antes de iniciá-lo, mas, de toda forma, as críticas quanto a não ser um curso para pessoas que não dominam o inglês se mantêm.
It is a great effort to try to explain writing an academic paper. I appreciate it. And unfortunately, these guys have an awful English accent. It is almost impossible to understand. Moreover, their sentences are so long and complicated that makes it impossible to get it. Nice try but it doesn't work :(

Extremely hard to understand --sounds like a parody straight out of the Pink Panther movies--, unbearable to follow...

Most video's are spoken in a sort of 'Franglais' that is barely understandable, very annoying.

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 well structured and covers all of the most important criteria for research paper writing. Including a peer-review checklist is an excellent idea because at the end of the course you are left with the perfect outline to begin writing your own research papers. One issue I faced, however, was that somebody plagiarised my whole checklist shortly after they reviewed it. They gave me 100 points in the peer review and then copy-pasted my entire checklist exactly as it was into their own document and submitted it as their own. They did not even change the wording or formatting. I am not sure how this can be avoided in the future, but I hope nobody else does this as I put in several hours of work into my checklist and do not appreciate somebody else taking credit for it.

This was an excellent course for someone who is a novice researcher. Even though I have a few publications under my belt I still found this course useful. The course is very systematic and makes hard concepts simple. The assignments are well-designed. Though the element of peer-review of assignments can be tricky (you have to rely on someone else's understanding to pass the course), I appreciate the spirit behind it (which can be misused). Overall, I would highly recommend this course. I would suggest it will be great if you do this course if you have a working paper. I was working on one and I could immediately apply what I was learning on that paper. This course helped me review my own work.

The course is not just great for PhD students, but for all the students who want to pursue a career in research and want to learn how to write a scientific paper. I started early, and this course was extremely efficient in teaching with how to write and publish a research paper. The peer review (Weeks 3 and 4) is a great experience and the interaction between students from all over the world is brilliant.
A great course, not just for PhD students, but for all future/current researchers! Thank you to the team for their persistence, hard work and dedication!

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
Hello, I am Filianti and everyone can call me Fili. I am from Indonesia and just finished my bachelor degree on education.
I am so falling in love with this course, because I got a lots new knowledge from this course. The course is so interesting too, we persue to do some works that we have to do when we write the real paper. And below is my final work, I hope I can get positive feedback from my peers. Please don’t be hestitate to correct my this final work, if you don’t mind.

The course is elaborate and gives a great insight into the world of research and research paper writing. After taking this course and completing the assignments,I feel confident of my abilities to write a scientific paper. I started as beginner with no knowledge of the processes involved in research paper writing, but ended up having a holistic idea of the field. The peer reviewed assignments and peer reviewing of other learners' assignments was a great way to learn.

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.
