The Art of Writing Methods: Tips and Tricks for Reproducible Methods at CMU

The Art of Writing Methods: Tips and Tricks for Reproducible Methods at CMU Online

Research papers and protocol organization in labs often lack detailed instructions for repeating experiments. protocols.io is 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 and allow open communication with authors and researchers to encourage efficient experimentation and reproducibility. Join this webinar to learn more about protocols.io and the benefits that come with your Premium CMU account.

This workshop will cover:

  1. Introduction to protocols.io: Learn more about protocols.io's mission, how to discover public protocols, create your own protocols, share methods with others, and how to publish protocols.
  2. protocols.io Premium: We will walk you through how you can set up your Premium account and start working on adding your protocols to protocols.io.
  3. The Art of Writing Protocols: Receive practical tips on how you can make your methods more reproducible and you will be equipped with a list of best practices for writing protocols.

There will also be plenty of time for a Q&A session, so please feel free to come with any questions that you have about the platform.
