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.

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

I higly recommend to revise the scoring rubrics for the assignment -checklist. I dont see it fare to give between 75 and 100 for the score to the fact that we made an effort doing the checklist better to other options such as 80 or 85 orchange the checlist instead since wehave different style in making a checklist. Thanks and more power still a good and interesting course

A laughable course and very poorly prepared, almost a complete waste of time if not for the final exercise

This review is not about the course itself but the unenrollment.

I am not able to unenroll this course which is kind of annoying because I am not able to follow this course due to personal reasons. So I would like to unenroll but it is not possible which is kind of stupid.

I do think this is a great course for PhD students, but not for me since I'm not even close to a PhD
