Electronic Laboratory Notebooks – help or hindrance to academic research?
Recently, we hear more and more about electronic lab notebooks as a way of better managing lab data. Here is a blog post on the ELN topic by the University of Edinburgh.
On the 30 October 2013 the University of Edinburgh (UoE) organised what I believe to be the first University wide meeting on Electronic Lab Notebooks (ELN), and allowed a number of Principal Investigators (PIs) and others the opportunity to provide useful feedback on their user experiences. This provided an excellent opportunity to help discuss and inform what the UoE can do to help its researchers, and whether there is likely to be one ‘solution’ which could be implemented across the UoE or if a more bespoke and individual/discipline specific approach would be required.
