Yewno hosts high school research competition to celebrate launch of Yewno Create

Redwood City, CA, February 12, 2018 -- Yewno, Inc. a leading provider of AI solutions, today announces the launch of Yewno Create, a platform that gives K-12 students the ability to research, write, collaborate on and publish research articles.

To celebrate the launch, Yewno will be hosting the DoYewno? High School Research Competition. The competition begins on Wednesday, February 14th, and will remain open to students age 19 and under until materials become due at midnight PST on March 31, 2018.

Submissions will be reviewed by an editorial board of OJS University professors and published in one of the student journals hosted by Stanford's Designership Institute, a network of open source scholarly content. Editors will judge the articles for most innovative research content, as well as quality of construction. Contest winners will be announced in April, and four awards will be given out by Stanford Designership Institute at that time. The top submission will also be awarded a summer internship to Designership Institute at Stanford in a lab of their choice. More information can be found at

Research for the DoYewno? High School Research Competition will be powered by Yewno Create. Entrants will be given complementary access to the system, which powers research and serves as a platform for constructing and submitting student articles. Students will be able to search journals by topic and select from over 20 journals to submit to. They will then perform extensive research with access to Yewno's database of over 130 million scholarly articles including billions of snippets, which will help them find interrelated concepts.

Once ready to create their article, students are prompted with simple directions on how to structure their work, including how to write an abstract, introduction and background, and present their methodology, data and conclusions. They can even access examples of others' work to verify that they are on the right track.

Co-authors can collaborate and share notes and drafts. They can even access saved concepts within each other's research and use a chat platform to discuss their article. Once the article is complete, authors can submit and export the article in various formats including a poster format for school presentations. Editors will then review, add notes and questions, and suggest revisions.

"Yewno made it seamless for me to deliver curriculum that enhances the Common Core State and the Next Generation Science Standards. The platform intuitively engages students with their research in ways that I have never seen before in my 9 years as an educator." says Freedom Cheteni, a math teacher at Design Technology High School in Redwood City, CA. Cheteni's class will be participating in the DoYewno? Competition and looks forward to sharing their findings with peers across the country and internationally.
