What is Protocols.io?


Princeton University students, faculty, and staff now have access to free premium accounts on protocols.io, an open-access repository of step-by-step, detailed protocols and methods for researchers across multiple disciplines, particularly those in the sciences and engineering.

Protocols.io 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.
