To learn how a paper is peer-reviewed was very interesting because it explains the time needed to publish a paper.
It also shows the quality of the papers in A&A. These information will be very useful in my work.
The school was perfect, very interesting, very useful and nicely organized.
Just continue to organize this school because for young astronomers, it's perfect.
Many things will be used immediately. The facilities were excellent. The school demystifies manuscripts (published papers),
brings together students from all fields, gives knowledges for the future. Make sure to keep it running. Thank you!
The school is important for the future preparation of manuscripts, important to improve as an author, important to see and to know the point of view from the editors and referees.

SWYA school was a well arranged and for me was very useful, instructive and also it was really fun...
I do not know how can I thank all the people who organized and attended this school …
I really liked the school and the discussions stimulated! I believe the lectures and the
organization were very well taken care of, thus many thanks to all the people involved
for this wonderful experience! …
I have to admit that this school was amazing and very informative.
The discussed subjects are very crucial in a PhD student's life …
