Feedback from researchers

I like how the topics were broken up. The shortness of the video allows me to fit my learning between work and research.

Postdoctoral student, United States, on-demand course taker

The opportunity to go through my abstract with the editors was fantastic ... And the workshop booklet is a great resource to take home with me.
