Building and Adding Your Protocol: A Guide
This guide is designed to help you create, develop, publish, and add a protocol to the URE Repository. You can click “Introduction to the Repository” to begin and go through the guide linearly, or click any button or link in any order to access the information you need as you need it.
This is an overview of the general structure of the URE Repository on the Open Science Framework. Protocols, posted as OSF projects, are comprised of Wikis, components, and files.
Our team has created a series of method-specific templates with included prompts to help you build your protocol. These templates are optimized to use with our newly developed importer plugin.
Here you’ll find step-by-step instructions on creating an OSF project, and developing and adding your protocol manually. You can also use our importer, which will allow you to populate your OSF project directly from a MS Word file or Google Doc.
One of the main goals of the URE Repository is to support the use of previously developed research methods in new URE work. To this end, we encourage users of the Repository to take advantage of OSF’s “forking” and linking features, and have created guidance to help you get started.
While many researchers in our collection opt for Creative Commons attribution, you can choose any license that meets your specific needs and preferences. Learn more about licensing your protocol in this guide.
From creating a description to selecting relevant tags for your work, and everything in between, click here to learn more about creating the meta-data for your project that will make it easier for other researchers to find on the Repository. [Link in progress]
