Electronic Laboratory Notebook - ELN

Since spring 2011, there is an ELN (Electronic Laboratory Notebook) at Uppsala University for documentation and safe electronic storage of laboratory notes.

Advantages of using ELN

  • Higher quality and better structure of the research documentation
  • Improved efficiency, by facilitating information reusage
  • Higher security as the database is continuously backed up
  • Searchability
  • Facilitates communication between various research groups
  • Possibility to set up the system so that experiments can be countersigned

ELN is used in the same way as a paper logbook, and is primarily a log of research, even though the system also facilitates other types of documentation.
