When students get involved in research, they almost always have an advisor. University students enroll in a research seminar, or they find a professor with similar interests to serve as a mentor. Research mentors support student researchers throughout the entire research process, from ideation to publication. High school students who want to conduct research often resort to cold emailing professors at local universities, but they frequently do not hear back.

Jinso’s research advising platform is a better way for high school students to connect with advisors for independent academic research. Jinso advisors span across countless academic disciplines, so high school students are matched with an advisor sharing similar interests. Advisors range from experienced undergraduate researchers to postdocs, and they are all experts in their fields and research methodologies.

Jinso’s advisors stay dedicated to their students throughout the entire research process. They guide students on defining their research question, collecting data, writing their paper, getting peer reviewed, and sharing their work. Advisors will provide students with tips to meet all of the criteria for successful peer review and publication.

Student researchers have complete control over the topic of their paper, research, written report, and method of sharing. Advisors provide essential guidance for each step while allowing students to work independently and receive proper credit for their work. By the end of the process, students will have shared a citable, copyrighted research paper.

High school students can participate in Jinso’s research advising program individually, or with other students as co-authors. Students can sign up with their peers to collaborate on a paper, or they can use the Jinso network to discover other high school students globally with similar interests. 

Jinso research advising is open for enrollment. Sign up today to get started.

GitHub is a popular platform used by computer scientists to manage their collaborative projects, but a similar program does not exist for academic work. There is no standard platform to create work, connect with others, and share work in one place. Most platforms only fall into one or two of these categories.The Jinso collaboration tool is a better way for groups to work on projects. By bringing the entire academic collaboration process onto one tool, it simplifies workflows and communication.The first steps for using the Jinso platform are:

Create an account
Create your first group

Once a user builds a network, they can create new Groups that consist of their network members. By default, the creator of a group is the admin. The most common Group is a research group, but the platform can manage several other types of academic projects. Platform users can create study groups for sharing course materials or groups of club members for extracurricular work.The admin of the Group has the ability to add new members at any time.
Admins are also responsible for creating Projects within Groups.

A Project for a research group is usually a research paper, but Projects can also be other forms of documents that could benefit from discussion and revisions. Examples include study guides, business plans, articles, and essays. Each Group can have an unlimited number of Projects within it, and all Projects within a Group are shared among the same members.

Example of Research group
Revisions of the paper

When a new Project is created, an initial revision must be shared. This can either be plain text or a PDF.
The Project will be immediately visible to all Group members with the first revision shown. Group members can comment on the revision with questions or feedback, and others can reply to comments.When another revision of the paper has been completed, the Group admin can add a new revision to the same Project.
The revision will become visible above the prior revision, and it will have a new comment box associated with it. Projects make it simple to keep track of a paper’s entire revision history and discussions at each stage. 

For each revision, Group admins can also create subtasks. Arrows allow Group members to view all of the different subtasks and comment on them individually. Subtasks allow a paper to be analyzed in unique components. For example, a research paper can have a unique subtask for each of its sections, and collaborators can discuss them all separately in the comment boxes. Jinso is a quicker way to collaborate on long-term projects. It makes it easier to connect, share, and manage the development of ideas and papers.
