What are the characteristics of an Exchange Protocol?

I have created a short screencast highlighting some essential features:

– each Exchange Protocol is associated with a Lab Group

– each has a DOI

– the Procedure is a series of numbered steps in the active tense

– you can add a query for the author, or other comment

– you can add the protocol to a list of favourites

You can browse for other Exchange Protocols by clicking here.

How do you create an Exchange Protocol

The first time you come to share a protocol, this will be a two stage process, both of which are very easy to do.

Stage 1 is “Creating a labgroup”, and Stage 2 is “Creating the protocol”.

I have made two screen casts that show how these steps are achieved.
