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.

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.

Es un curso muy bien estructurado que va paso a paso siguiendo la secuencia de un documento de investigación, lo más interesante es que es la perspectiva de un estudiante, nos explica desde cero hasta la entrevista con un editor, eso es genial!! Gracias, es un gran curso!!

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.

It was a fantastic course. Some speakers pronunciation is hard to understand, may be it needs to improve their pronunciation and make it more clear. All the lessons were very informative and easily understandable. I really enjoyed the course and learned a lot.

Very interesting and well designed.

I personally liked very much the PhDs were sharing their knowledge with others, it was really emphatetic.

Well done, guys; a big virtual hug to Héloïse because I felt she was really having fun in teaching :-)

Although it is sometimes difficult for me to understand the people explaining the content (I am not a native English speaker), the course helped me to better understand some elements I already knew.

I will recommend it to my fellow teachers.

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.
