Import of private methods from into RSpace is now available! and Research Space are pleased to announce an important enhancement to the integration of the RSpace electronic lab notebook with In addition to public protocols, it is now also easy to import private methods from into RSpace.

From June, 2018 it’s been possible to link to and import protocols directly from into RSpace.  This enabled researchers to streamline their workflows by incorporating examples from a growing library of protocols into their experimental write-ups in RSpace.

The enhancement, which is now available, extends this functionality to private protocols as well as public protocols. Individual researchers can now make use of the RSpace integration while still keeping protocols private, as can users who have set up private groups in  There is more information on private groups and public groups in here, and full documentation of the integration with RSpace is available here.

How it works

To insert a protocol from into RSpace, simply select “Create from”.  This exposes the directory, from which you can search and select a protocol for import into RSpace.  Authors, metadata about the original source, and publication data carry over to RSpace along with all the live links, images, and structured text such as tables.

To create a link to a protocol in when editing an RSpace document, click the “import from” icon. You’ll be prompted for your username and password, and after authenticating, the directory will be exposed.  Select the protocol you want, and by ticking the box next to that protocol, a link to the protocol will be created in the RSpace document you are working on.
