|Copyright and Licensing
|Copyright and Licensing Policy
|In most of the cases, law establishes that recipes and cookbooks are not subject to copyright.(http://www.copyright.gov/fls/fl122.html). They are statements of fact/instructions, and so both protocol steps and materials can be republished outside of the original journal.
|Any activity on the website infringing our Terms of Service and detected as Spam leads to a suspension of the account and removal of the protocols by the protocols.io team.
|Publication charge policy
|It is completely free to read and publish protocols on protocols.io
approx. number in 12 months
|More than 1,300 protocols are now publicly available on the platform
|Any user can publish protocol on the platform, but users can also add annotations, comments to any existing protocol and create a public group on the platform and interact with other scientists through open access discussions.
|Peer review process
|Anyone is free to publish on protocols.io and protocols.io doesn’t have a peer review process. However we have established partnerships with who use protocols.io during their review process.
Authors create an account on protocols.io and enter their protocol as ‘private’. Then they can pre-publish it in without listing it on protocols.io by using the "get DOI" function. They include this DOI in the M&M section of their paper Anyone with this DOI can access the method but this protocol won’t be shared publicly After publication, if the author wants the protocol to be public on protocols.io, they will have to click on the ‘list’ button to make it appear in the search results of the platform.
|Peer review policy
|Anyone is free to publish their protocol and we don’t have a traditional peer review process. However, we try to ensure the quality of the platform by partnering with trusted reagent vendors and who provide high quality protocols to us and we have the ability to remove any content that seems abusive or inappropriate to us.
