is a platform for recording, organizing, and sharing detailed up-to-date research methods and protocols. The tool allows researchers to easily create, edit, share, and get credit for their protocols, and provides an open access hub for scientists to communicate improvements and corrections to scientific methods. The platform is useful for researchers in any disciplines that use step-by-step methodologies, such as biology, chemistry, neuroscience, engineering, data science, and other computational or life science fields.


Service Details

  • Create a workspace for your lab or research group to keep protocols organized, versioned, and shared among lab members, with collaborators, or publicly.
  • Publish a more complete methods section by creating a DOI for your public protocol and linking it in a manuscript.
  • Share protocols with students in computational or lab classes.
  • Run protocols as checklists on the web or mobile.
