Research papers and protocol organization in labs often lack detailed instructions for repeating experiments. is a secure platform for developing and sharing reproducible methods. Researchers can create step-by-step, interactive, and dynamic protocols that can be run on mobile or web. Protocols can be shared 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, Q&A, and troubleshooting. Public protocols receive a DOI (Digital Object Identifier).The Premium edition is available for the Stanford community (learn more).
This workshop led by Anita Bröllochs of consists of 3 parts:

  • Introduction to -'s mission, discovering public protocols, platform features, using ORCID with your protocols, and sharing your protocol with a DOI.
  • "The Art of Writing Protocols" - Receive practical tips for more reproducible methods and you will be equipped with a list of best practices for writing protocols.
  • Hands-on - Set up your free Stanford Carbon account and start working on your own protocols. Please bring your own protocols that you can start working on during the workshop!
