I really liked the course and the contents are great. Except for the language problem, everything else is very good, and really enjoyed learning from peers and instructors. Thank you for the platform.
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 is okay. It doesn't help the researchers in the things they need the most. I would recommend following Prof. Kristin Sainani's course on "Writing in the sciences" if someone actually wants to learn to write a paper. Although the grading system here is like a barter system where you have to beg around in forums to get your writeups graded and you receive almost no feedback at all. People simply press whatever number they feel like. It seems like this is where coursera is heading since this seems to be a common pattern in some of the non technical courses.

It's a good course, especially if you go through the extra readings at the end of each module, loads to learn there. The English pronunciation of the teachers can be a bit confusing sometimes, because they are native French speakers. Sometimes the descriptions of the tasks don't appear until after you submit a task, which makes it difficult to reach 100%. And the deadlines can be difficult to reach, because the peer reviews can take too much time.
Me pareció un buen curso introductorio a lo que es la investigación, lo recomiendo ampliamente a estudiantes de preparatoria y primer año de universidad, mas allá de esos estudios, solo lo recomendaría para repasar conceptos muy básicos. Una cosa que no me agrado fue el mal ingles, es inentendible sin los subtitulos, por lo que si alguien quiere hacer este curso y repasar el idioma no creo que le sirva de mucho. Por lo demás todo muy bien.

Would have been significantly better if the course was taught in the native language (French) and then someone fluent in both languages translated. A lot of words were misused or undecipherable because the speakers were not using the language correctly.
Still, the material was helpful and I benefited from the course.

A good course who teaches the way you have to do to write correctly a scientific paper, and gives an idea about the process of publish, it is useful and necessary for those who wants to continuous study and have their own work knows on the fields who works and research.

Spent one evening to pass all the course. Overly simplistic. Questions after videos are self evident and don't require watching videos. Frankly, I strongly doubt that people passing this course I will succeed in writing peer-reviewed papers.

The course contains some interesting insights on writing a scientific paper. What I like about the course is that it is given by graduate students. But this is also a drawback. Sometimes, the material seems too simplistic.

I would suggest to be more simple and effective. Discuss concrete cases and details of a about errors and structure of a paper. But really appreciate that the cours is given from PHDs students!

The content was fine and went pretty smoothly. The real problem was the hassle of getting the accent of most of the instructors. Plus, there're a lot of mistakes in the subtitles as well.

Good course for PHD students. Also, it can be beneficial for non academic papers which intended to be submitted industrial conferences.

The content of the course is good but the review process need to be improved. The assignments should be reviewed by the instructors

INITIAL PEER GRADING WAS NOT VERY MATURE ENOUGH IN GRADING MY ASSIGNMENT SERIOUSLY..
by Carlos R S J•
It is good, but there is a student speaking that is really difficult to understand.
Exteremely good course for those who r doing research ....Thanks to whole Team.
by Joseph V B B•
It is very good for undergraduate students starting their research projects
by Debyani R•
Please make it easier to understand the peer-grade assignment and process.
by Derrick G•
not very useful because there are few examples of it.
by Wisam A W•
A good summary on how to start thinking research!

The grading is a mess. The content is good.

Too basic, especially when considering "it was written from PhD students for PhD students". The course lacks substance and the advice is too general and intuitive (for master of PhD students which of course as mentioned is the targeted audience of this course). I would much rather recommend "Writing in the Sciences" - this is what this course should have been (however note that that writing in the sciences is teaches principles through medical articles).
