Digital Lab Journals
A digital lab journal or electronic lab notebook (ELN) is a tool that in its most basic form replicates an interface much like a page in a paper lab notebook.
Compared to handwritten, analogue lab notebooks, ELNs offer several advantages:
- Easier sharing of lab journal entries with collaborators.
- Everything is kept in the digital sphere. As most analytical data nowadays is generated in digital formats, the use of a digital lab journal helps to work in a uniform environment instead of working in the digital as well as the analog world.
- Most eLab journals also provide additional, sometimes field-specific, features that can help to improve the workflow.
The UG offers two products to researchers and research groups that are both hosted on UG servers with data is stored locally by the university.
