"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: JATOS follows the model-view-controller (MVC) architecture (see Fig 2). Incoming HTTP requests are routed to controllers that in turn return an HTTP response. Controllers fall into two groups. On the one hand, the management controllers answer calls sent from JATOS’ GUI, via the management API. On the other hand, the Publix controllers handle requests originating from the participant’s browser and going via the public API. If the browser asks to start a component, the Publix controller retrieves the HTML file associated with the component from the study assets and returns it.
