Protocol Service from protocols.io

Have a research protocol you’d like to share with other researchers? You might have seen the announcement that the University of California system has a three-year premium subscription for protocols.io, a platform for collaborative research and an open repository of research protocols. One of the benefits of this pilot is a service offered by protocols.io to import and format an existing protocol for you.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Send protocols.io the protocol you wish to publish in any electronic format (PDF, Word document, Google document, etc.).
  2. The protocols.io editorial team enters the protocol and double checks it to make sure there are no errors or typos relative to the document that you provided.
  3. The editorial team sends you the protocol for review.
  4. If all looks good, the protocol will be reassigned to you privately and you will be able to publish it whenever you’re ready.

Submit your protocol at https://www.protocols.io/we-enter-protocols.
