    If you use something like Hivebench, which is available in the cloud, instead of a paper notebook, you will store, secure and protect your research findings, which means you can start your research again more quickly and easily after a fire or other disaster.

    Taking notes is part of doing research, but paper notebooks are a pain. It takes a long time to write out step-by-step procedures in a notebook.

    The Hivebench iPad app lets you select a protocol for your experiment, follow it at the bench, photograph the results and save your notes in real time. At the end of a PhD, a student sends their work for publication and moves on to another job in a different lab.

    If the reviewers request more data, this can be challenging. Someone in your old lab could try to find these results, but they would need access to the previous experiments in the lab notebooks.

    It can take them hours, if not days, to find and understand what you did. In Hivebench, you can carry out a full-text search using any term to filter through experiments and results. Very often the human brain better remembers results based on an image — I might remember a green cell with some red dots in the nucleus, but not when or how the experiment was done.

    Using Hivebench, you can search for an image and click through to its related procedure, the list of reagents and all the results.

    How to pick an electronic laboratory notebook

    You note down that the data file associated with your experiment is stored on server X. Hivebench stores everything on the same platform. You add data files to the experiments and they are stored in the same place, making them accessible ten years later and beyond. I used to take notes in my personal lab book but also in a team notebook. Researchers who work in multiple locations might have a different lab book at each bench and results stored on various computers and servers.

    To use a result from a machine, you would save it to a drive, go to the lab, download it and write notes in the book. Hivebench is available everywhere and syncs from the web, desktop, iPad and iPhone, so when you get results from a piece of equipment in one lab, they can be available instantly in another.

    You can also personalize access to different experiments, making the data available to your colleagues and lab manager. One of the most frustrating things in the lab is to get to a certain point in your experiment only to find the reagent you need has run out, or is missing.

    Lab notebook

    I was keen to solve this problem, so we developed inventories and reagents features in Hivebench. This means you can check your iPhone app to find the reagent you need — you can see its location down to the room, fridge, drawer and even box — without having to head back to your desk and open a spreadsheet. At the end of the day all I needed to do was cut and paste it into my lab book. This saved me a ton of time and I got to feel like a little kid doing arts and crafts.

    Lab Notes: Guide to Lab and Diagnostic Tests by Tracey B. Hopkins

    Number your pages. The lab books we were supplied with were simple hard back note pads and came without any sort of page numbers. Have a set structure for your entries, including sections such as aims and background. While it may seem overly formal to start your entries with such preamble, it will help you immensely when it comes to writing up your work as a paper or in your thesis.

    Write more detail than you think you need. One of the best ways to do this is to think of your lab book as an instruction manual that someone would be able to follow without requiring translation.

    Many results can be either written or cut and pasted into your lab book, however some results such as dried gels and X-ray films are a bit more tricky and you may not want to stick these down.

    For such instances I pop the results into a file in poly pockets and stick a label with the date and page number of my lab book on. Think mobile. Some labs prefer ELNs that can run on mobile devices.

    He and his colleagues wanted to use tablets to record experiments while working in a clean room, because the devices are portable and can be wiped down easily. Consider software integration. Links to favourite software could tip the scales for some scientists. Go for a test drive. Jones suggests test-driving free versions of a few products, ranging from basic to complex.

    Preferences for minor features come down to personal taste. Try generic platforms. Some scientists stick with generic note-taking products.

    Every month, his team exports pages to PDF files and signs them electronically; the files are then moved to a directory where they cannot be changed. Evernote, from Evernote Corporation in Redwood City, California, is an alternative note-taking option. Commit to change. In , Downie co-led a trial of four ELNs, in which researchers at the University of Cambridge rated features such as user interface, support for collaboration and file-management capabilities.

    Although many scientists initially expressed enthusiasm about ELNs, only 37 of the participants completed the exercise. Gotthardt gave his team three months to play with OneNote while continuing to record experiments on paper. Everyone then made the switch — a change that went smoothly, he says.
