Electronic Lab Notebooks offer numerous advantages over the use of traditional handwritten lab notebooks. First of all, a digital lab notebook offers flexibility: you can access and search your data anywhere and anytime on any device. Also, an ELN offers the option to efficiently collaborate and share data with other members in the lab. It also provides excellent tools for archiving research data after a scientist has left the lab. An ELN also offers a solution to manage data in a traceable manner following GLP compliance.
