SpringerProtocols to Transition to New Springer Nature Experiments

On July 25th, the SpringerProtocols platform will be deactivated and transitioned to Springer Nature Experiments.

Springer Nature Experiments is a database dedicated to protocols and methods. Free-to-use, it has been designed to assist researchers in finding and evaluating protocols and methods across the whole Springer Nature protocols and methods portfolio. Its algorithm tracks lab techniques and model organisms mentioned in articles to help locate the most relevant references. The number of citations and downloads are displayed showing which articles are worth further investigation.

All SpringerProtocols content is already searchable via this new research platform. Check it out here.
