Ringraziamo i colleghi di Biblò per questa segnalazione che riportiamo fedelmente
July 5, 2006 – “Scientific publisher Nature Publishing Group (NPG) today announced the launch of Nature Protocols (http://www.natureprotocols.com ), an online database of commissioned, peer-reviewed Nature Protocols combined with a forum, Protocols Network, where scientists can comment on existing protocols and post their own lab protocols. Nature Protocols combines NPG’s editorial and production values with the principles of ‘Web 2.0’ to create a unique, dynamic protocols resource….”
“…The site has two protocol streams:
Nature Protocols are high impact, commissioned, peer-reviewed protocols, which are selected on the basis of their relevance to outstanding biological and biomedical research questions. Nature Protocols are presented in an easy to follow, step-by-step format with highlighted critical steps, troubleshooting guides and useful pause points. They are available in both html and PDF format so that they can be printed out and used directly at the bench. A total of 400 up-to-date Nature Protocols are planned for publication in 2006.”
“The Protocols Network consists of protocols uploaded to the site by scientists in the community and are not commissioned or peer-reviewed. This part of the site provides an opportunity for scientists to share the experimental protocols they have developed in the course of their research. Any scientist can upload their protocols to the site, and authors of articles published in Nature and Nature research journals have already contributed.”
“Scientists are encouraged to add comments, tips and advice to protocols within Nature Protocols and Protocols Network to continually refine and update this resource. Access to the full content presented in Nature Protocols is available through an institutional site license. Protocols and comments published in Protocols Network will remain publicly viewable without charge.”
