A very helpful course. My writing has improved significantly in these 8 weeks. I highly recommend this course to everyone. Thank you Dr. Kristin Sainani and Coursera for bringing this course together.
Hello Kristin\n\nThank you for teaching me the basics of academic writing and editing with proper grammar. In this course, I was introduced to the scientific panel which further enriched my knowledge.

Great review and help writing papers! I liked the editing sections and how to keep your paper sounding precise but not too wordy. Some of the sections were a bit long, but otherwise very helpful! Thanks!

The teacher is very concise and all videos have clear learning goals. You don't spend 5 minutes without learning something. Week 7 and 8 are not that relevant to scientific writing and are a bit boring.
By Gabriel B V•
A good course in general. The first few weeks are really hard for people who are not native English speakers. You should consider the assignments based that not everyone is a native English speaker.

Could use more variety in journal examples. Course was a little heavy on medical biology; it would've been nice having examples from other sciences as well. Otherwise, very helpful course.

It´s a really usfeul course, although basically for beginners. They need to update the part of social media as they data are from many years ago, but you learn in every of their modules.

A lot of good stuff, especially in the first half or 2/3 of the course. Somewhat weaker towards the end, but still valuable overall. Do please try to keep the politics out, however!!

This course provides a basic idea of how to approach writing with variety of examples. The course covers some techniques and knowledge that are useful for doing actual writing.

I have just completed the online course "Writing in the Sciences"; I enjoyed learning new writing techniques and testing myself.I highly reccommend it to everyone! :)

Was indeed helpful although in my case the later content was not relevant to my personal situation. I enjoyed the examples and succinct explanations of the content.
By Sumedh A A•
Overall the course was a nice experience and i learnt a lot. But I think course content should be upgraded now (apparently content creation was done 4-5 yrs back).
By Uma M K•

Very well laid out. Examples provided for all explanations, even the interviews. Very useful for someone who needs to adapt to a new way of writing.

The presenter is well knowledgeable and almost his presentations are clear.
It is benefits for those who wants to learn writing in academic field.
By Dr. S A S•
It is a beneficial course well prepared by the supervisor Dr Sainani
I recommend this course to whom willing to be an excellent scientific writer
By Jacob B•
This course was extremely informative, but a tad boring. It also needs a little updating, especially because social media has become so pervasive
By Victor C P•
Excellent courso. I learned a lot. If i can do a suggestion, i would suggest a little bit more of grammar and less about talking to the media.
By Manar H•
I got a great experience from this course, but it may be better if we have a direct discussion with the instructor though e-mail or messages
By Daniela M R•
Excelente curso, el material fue muy bueno y las pláticas extraordinarias. Solo me gustaría que fuera un poco menos de tiempo por semana
By Luca L•
Very good introductory course. Not much interactive but quite engaging also in this format. I'll recommend it to colleagues and friends.
By Daniela S•
Very interesting and helpful course not only for those who are starting to write scientific documents, but to improve writing skills.
By Sara A•
This course is great and easy to understand but, the last 2 weeks are not important for someone caring now about scientific writing.
By Anushree D•
This course was lovely and beautiful; however, I feel some of the modules were too detailed and some topics could have been omitted.
By Scott K•
Great course to learn the foundation of medical writing. Videos got a little tedious toward the end, but otherwise very educational.
By Suheyla Y•
Excellent course but assignments and examples in this course should be versatile - contents should not be only medicine or related.
