The written description of a study. It contains the study's objectives, design, and methods including subject target and/or enrollment criteria. It may also present relevant scientific background and statistical information.
Best practice for sharing this type of data:
A protocol should include steps, guidelines, warnings, and materials needed to complete the protocol from start to finish. Protocols may be saved as a txt. or csv. file, and may be submitted to Protocols.io as a pdf for revision and publishing if desired.
Most suitable repositories:
Protocols should be shared on Protocols.io and a citation to the Protocols.io entry should be added to the manuscript (both in the appropriate part of the Methods and in the References).
