Descriptions of experimental procedures are widespread in the scientific literature. The methods sections of research articles are typically brief, and may not provide enough information for a researcher to replicate the experiment. Protocols and methods are a body of literature that describe experimental procedures in detail. Research methods may be published separately and can be found in a variety of literature types: method-focused journals, books or dissertations.
A good protocol can save you countless hours in the lab with proven methodologies as a starting point for your research.
