"Just Another Tool for Online Studies" (JATOS): An Easy Solution for Setup and Management of Web Servers Supporting Online Studies.

Lange K, Kühn S, Filevich E - PLoS ONE (2015)

Bottom Line: All communication with the JATOS server takes place via a GUI (with no need to use a command line interface), making JATOS an especially accessible tool for researchers without a strong IT background.We describe JATOS' main features and implementation and provide a detailed tutorial along with example studies to help interested researchers to set up their online studies.JATOS can be found under the Internet address: www.jatos.org.

ABSTRACT
We present here "Just Another Tool for Online Studies" (JATOS): an open source, cross-platform web application with a graphical user interface (GUI) that greatly simplifies setting up and communicating with a web server to host online studies that are written in JavaScript. JATOS is easy to install in all three major platforms (Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux), and seamlessly pairs with a database for secure data storage. It can be installed on a server or locally, allowing researchers to try the application and feasibility of their studies within a browser environment, before engaging in setting up a server. All communication with the JATOS server takes place via a GUI (with no need to use a command line interface), making JATOS an especially accessible tool for researchers without a strong IT background. We describe JATOS' main features and implementation and provide a detailed tutorial along with example studies to help interested researchers to set up their online studies. JATOS can be found under the Internet address: www.jatos.org.

Mentions: The GUI is one of JATOS’ main strengths (see Fig 1). All communication with the JATOS server can be done through the GUI, including access to and management of result data. This completely eliminates the need for the command line interface, which is often the standard way to communicate with a server and database. As a result, testing and data analysis are much more accessible to researchers not necessarily familiar with the command line.
