Shubha Nagesh | eRM

“As someone who decided to plunge into research after ten years of programming in the field (developmental disabilities in the context of global health), the ERM course was a perfect match to build the skill. The content, the online mode, the gentle delivery, the flexibility, the generosity with extra time for someone like me who juggles two jobs, a kid, and a busy home, was incredible. I now have a fair idea of research methods and am inspired to make research easy for younger colleagues in my organization. To remove the fear that looms large in the minds of the staff for whom research remains the domain of the leadership in the organization, is a personal goal for me. If I succeed in supporting them to understand the value that implementation research can add to their work, I will consider it a job done well. I owe IPH and the ERM course a lot for providing me with the motivation to take this forward!! This course is a huge recommend for anyone looking to build research method knowledge and skills.”

The course has been designed in such a way that, it will be effectively helpful for the students and also for experienced professionals as a refresher tool. Clear, simple and to the point approach are the 3 main pillars of this course design. I am sure everybody will get benefitted out of this program. This is one of its kind… Thanks, team IPH.

Jerry Rachel John | eSWaRM

“I was very naive about scientific writing and especially reference management. This course was suggested to me by my faculty. Although i was little skeptical on how this course would go, i took it up and thoroughly followed every lecture and assignment. To my surprise the lectures opened up a brand new world of academia and i was overwhelmed. Though i am still an amateur in this field, i am confident i can improve. Thanks to the lectures of eSWaRM. Keep up the good work. Hopefully to join another course with IPH.”

This course is very useful for researchers on scientific writing. scientific writing is something new to me and i really enjoyed learning through small lectures created by IPH and slides are really helpful. Information on Bibliography management software and journals information has practical exposure to manage your research and plan for publications. scholarships offered by IPH is also a very good gesture for research scholars to promote learning in the field of research. Flexibility provided to complete various module and tests is appreciable for online courses. I wish all the best to faculty for continuous improving towards excellence.

This certificate course has laid a foundation for me to understand the components of a research paper and the processes that go into its writing. Most of the videos were of good quality with details being conveyed in simple and understandable ways. I would definitely wish to have the video tutorials describing usage of Mendeley software tool, disappointed to see that the tutorial is no more available. Overall, its been a good learning experience.
I am looking forward to learn from more such courses and thank you all the teachers for this activity, thank you very much.

Anisha Yaji | eSWaRM

When I joined the course I thought I had an idea about the article writing and basics of mendley software. But, now I know that I didnt know a lot about scientific writing. Also there were several tips regarding the reference management system that will definitely help me in future. Because I had to take the classes along with my day to day work crisp and short lecture videos along with a catch up week in between helped me to keep up with the assignments and the course.

Vinayak Padikkal Variyam | eSWaRM

My major attraction was about getting guidance on various guidelines available different researches and also very thorough understanding of using Mendeley. this course also paves path for further self learning even after this course finish.

Siri .N.N | eSWaRM

A very informative course, specially designed for skill development. Before this course, I had no idea that writing a scientific article is so systematic. Every week we get 2 unit, and we can finish learning them at our convenience. Also one can talk to tutor over whats-app or call, and they are always available for clarifying our doubts. This course is a complete package, which teaches us right from the grammar usage up-to software usage, tools for searching articles, citation and reference management. I would definitely recommend this course for those who want learn writing a scientific article.  

Ramya VK | eSWaRM

The course helped to look at the scientific publication in a different manner. Differentiate between scientific research articles, how to write a research paper from scratch. It has helped to keenly look at the procedure/ protocols, compare the graphs and titles etc. Content management using mendeley was a great learning as I was not aware of any such thing in all these years for reference management. The assessments helped in understanding how much I have learnt and go back to classes if needed. Overall it was a great learning and under standing process. will definitely make use of the same in my own work and writing.
