Event Description

Research papers and protocol organization in labs often lack detailed instructions for repeating experiments. Princeton University Library has a instutional membership to, an open-access platform for researchers to collaboratively create step-by-step, interactive, and dynamic protocols that can be run on mobile or web. Researchers can share protocols with colleagues, collaborators, the scientific community or make them public, with ease and efficiency. Real-time communication and interaction keep protocols up to date with versioning, forking/copying, Q&A, and troubleshooting. Public protocols receive a DOI (digital object identifier) and allow open communication with authors and researchers to encourage efficient experimentation and reproducibility.

This 45-minute workshop will cover:

  1. Introduction to’s mission and key functionality

  2. How to discover public protocols, create your own protocols, share methods with others, and how to publish protocols

  3. Q&A: We will stay online to answer any questions you have while you start to use

Hosted by Gabriel Gasque,

To register:

Princeton University students, faculty, and staff now have access to free premium accounts on, an open-access repository of step-by-step, detailed protocols and methods for researchers across multiple disciplines, particularly those in the sciences and engineering. allows Princeton researchers to create, manage, and share their research protocols and methods with other users on the platform, making them freely available for other scholars and improving reproducibility across the field. Users may also choose to keep their research private.
