Support Us in Breaking Barriers to Youth Research

About the Team

We are a passionate team of PhD, medical, masters, undergraduate and high school students from 15 different countries.

  • This diversity fosters an incredibly unique environment and allows us to approach issues from many different perspectives. We believe research should have no limitations; so we welcome all ages, backgrounds and experience levels (even people with no experience)! Members of our research team also have the opportunity to publish their manuscripts in our Journal of Multidisciplinary Research and Literacy (JMRL) at no cost.

What Do We Do?

  • Conduct interdisciplinary research through group projects.
  • Provides opportunities for members to serve as peer-reviewers and to learn how to edit manuscripts for publication.
  • Hosts exclusive workshops about research to learn more about the process.
  • Supported by experienced Advisors in writing academic articles.

The Journal of Multidisciplinary Research & Literacy

The Journal of Multidisciplinary Research and Literacy (JMRL) is a funded academic platform that publishes interdisciplinary research at no cost. We place an emphasis on supporting underrepresented groups in academia. JMRL works with the Lives for Literacy Research Team in promoting research literacy to an international audience.

JMRL accepts research from a wide range of fields, including but not limited to: Biology, Chemistry, Oceonography, Geology, Physics, Engineering, Mathematics, Economics, Ethics, Ecology, History, Psychology, Environment, Sociology, Political Science, Anthropology, Medicine, Education, Computer Science, Technology and Agriculture!

Our Research Manual

The Blueprint to Research Manual serves as a blueprint for researchers to start designing innovative investigations and conduct ground-breaking discoveries.

Research is the foundation for a lot of the knowledge that influences how we live our lives. It helps bring awareness to issues, teaches us about the world we live in and as a tool allows us to help people on a large scale. On a personal level, research promotes critical thinking, leadership and creativity. The information found from experiments and investigations help develop medical treatment, provide insight into our behavior, gain understanding of our environment, answer what was once unknown and make an impact on the attitudes and values of people.
