  • Template needs to:
    • Provide Background
    • Collect different versions of a given protocol
    • Allow for comparison of those versions
    • Provide some sort of forum for discussion/comments/questions (see below)
  • Suggested Template
    • Multiple templates for flexibility or maybe several sub-templates so you can pick-and-choose?
  • Template Includes (searchable Keywords possible?)
  • User Friendly (Can we make this template easy to follow?)
  • Print Friendly


  • How do we optimize the process/format to maximize the number of protocols we can get.

User Input

  • We need a way for users to comment on protocols as well as ask questions, get debugging help, and have discussions.
  • We want these discussions to be archived and searchable.
  • Is the wiki the best format?
    • It may be cumbersome when the discussion gets large


  • Tutorial on categorizing and tagging
  • How can we best categorize each protocol?


  • How do we standardize terminology for easy understanding?
