Alternative: Third party plugins to import protocols & code

Last updated last month

Users can import their experiment documents from third party plugins as an alternative to manually enter the details in the form

Alternatively, if the author prefers to publish their protocols in or their code in Github, they are highly recommended to do so, for more enhanced visibility. CREDIT suite enables the users to import their protocols from and code from their github account in a few simple easy steps.

Authors need to publish their protocols in or code in github in their respective websites before they can import them into their Reuse Recipe Document. (Refer the following steps for a quick walkthrough)
