Research Protocols -- helping to combat the reproducibility crisis

Last year, FEBS Open Bio started publishing a new article type: Research Protocols. To date, the journal has published six excellent protocols across a broad range of sub-disciplines, including characterisation of circadian rhythms, visualising mitochondria, and validation of protein interactions.

Last year, FEBS Open Bio started publishing a new article type: Research Protocols. These articles describe an experimental protocol in more detail than that typically included in the methods section of a research article, providing a comprehensive list of all required reagents, a step-by-step procedure, and a troubleshooting section. Such articles are a valuable resource for researchers getting to grips with the intricacies of new experiments, and we hope will also aid in combatting the reproducibility crisis by ensuring that full experimental details are available for valuable protocols.

We have collected our six published Research Protocols in a virtual issue, which can be perused here. Has you lab perfected a methodology that you would like to share with the community? If so, consider submitting it to FEBS Open Bio! Full Author Guidelines can be viewed on this page.
