NISO Discourse Discussion for this session
https://discourse.niso.org/t/relationship-between-infrastructure-protocols-standards/99

Research protocols and information standards have much in common, and both are essential components of research infrastructure. Protocols outline the process for a specific experiment or research project, while standards provide technical best practices for processes across the whole information ecosystem.  In this session, representatives from a publisher, a protocols platform, and an infrastructure organization will discuss their perspectives on the relationships between each — what's working, what isn't, and what more is needed?

We are NISO, the National Information Standards Organization. We’re the place where information professionals turn for industry standards that enable them to work together. Let us help keep you informed about what’s happening at NISO and in the wider information community by signing up for emails in your area(s) of interest.
