Nature Protocols, published by the Nature Publishing Group, is an on-line scientific journal publishing methods in a recipe-style format. The journal was launched in June 2006 and the content includes both classical methods and cutting-edge techniques relevant to the study of biological problems. The content on this site is divided into ‘Nature Protocols’ and ‘Protocols Network’. ‘Nature Protocols’ are commissioned by editors and are peer reviewed, fully edited and styled prior to publication. Community and Supplier Protocols (within the ‘Protocols Network’) are uploaded by researchers and are not further styled, peer reviewed or copy edited, but posted live soon after submission. This includes many of the protocols used by recent Nature and Nature Research Journal authors.

Published protocols are sorted into the following categories:

  • Biochemistry
  • Cell and Tissue Culture
  • Cell Biology and Developmental Biology (includes detection of apoptosis and others)
  • Computational Biology and Theoretical Biology (includes Bioinformatics)
  • Genetic analysis (includes classical genetics, reverse genetics, mutation detection and others)
  • Genetic Modification (includes transgenes, transfection, transformation (genetics) and other gene delivery techniques)
  • Genomics and Proteomics (includes microarrays and others)
  • Imaging (includes Microscopy, MRI, SPECT and PET)
  • Immunological Techniques
  • Isolation and Purification (includes cell fractionation and others)
  • Microbiology and Virology
  • Molecular Biology (includes PCR, cloning, Southern blot and other DNA and RNA based techniques)
  • Model organisms (includes Drosophila, C elegans, Xenopus, Zebrafish, Mouse, Arabidopsis, Aspergillus, Dictyostelium and others )
  • Neuroscience
  • Pharmacology and Toxicology
  • Plant Biology
  • Spectroscopy and Structural Analysis (includes protein Mass Spectrometry and NMR)
  • Synthetic Chemistry, Chemical Modifications, Nanotechnology

Scientists can participate directly in the Protocols Network section of this site by uploading their laboratory's methods or commenting on published protocols. This content is freely available.

The International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) for Nature Protocols is 1754-2189, and the electronic international standard serial number (EISSN) is 1750-2799.
