We are excited to welcome Quentin Verwaerde of the French national library school, ENSSIB, to Stanford Libraries for term-long internship. He’ll mainly be working with Nicole Coleman and Sarah Sussman, but is looking forward to meeting folks around the library. To introduce him to SUL, we’ve asked him to tell us a bit about himself  -

Protocols.io Premium Edition Now Available for Stanford Users

September 3, 2019
by Amy E. Hodge

The Premium version of protocols.io -- a collaborative platform and preprint server for methods and protocols -- is now available free to all Stanford users! Funded by the Dean of Research and supported by Stanford Libraries, protocols.io allows you to create step-by-step detailed, interactive and dynamic protocols that can be run on mobile or web. This platform is useful for researchers in any discipline that uses a step-by-step methodology, including life sciences, engineering, chemistry, data science, and computational social sciences.

  • Creating Protocols: Protocols can be made from scratch or uploaded and converted from an existing Word or PDF document quickly and easily. In addition, if you have a particularly complex protocol, the staff at protocols.io will import a protocol for you.
  • DOIs & Publishing: Using the Premium version of protocols.io, you can share your protocols privately with labmates and collaborators, or publish them publicly with a Digitial Object Identifier (DOI) via protocol.io's open access repository. Getting a DOI for your protocol will make it easier for others to find and cite your protocols and give you credit for your work. And when you link from articles you publish to one of your own published protocols, you make your research articles more reproducible.
  • ORCID Connection: You can also connect your protocols.io account with your ORCID iD, which will allow protocols.io to automatically post information about your published protocols onto the Works section of your ORCID record.
