August 9, 2017 - Electronic lab notebooks: Can they replace paper?

Despite the increasingly digital nature of society, there are some areas of research that remain firmly rooted in the past; in this case the laboratory notebook, the last remaining paper component of an experiment. Countless electronic laboratory notebooks (ELNs) have been created in an attempt to digitize record keeping processes in the lab, but none of them have become a “key player” in the ELN market, due to the many adoption barriers that have been identified in previous research and further explored in the user studies presented here.
