Selecting An Electronic Lab Notebook: 7 Things You Must KnowSource: Accelrys, Inc.
Electronic lab notebooks (ELNs) are one of the primary scientific informatics solutions for helping scientists design, execute, analyze and report on experiments—but selecting the right ELN can be a challenge.
The right ELN strategy and solution can set your organization above the competition in terms of scientific information capture, workflow optimization, process consistency, IP protection, collaboration within global virtual teams and improved productivity through knowledge sharing.
In short, you’re choosing a critical business application that will drive your R&D productivity for years to come. However, it can be difficult to tell the difference between supported and unsupported functionality, between fact and fiction, during pre-purchase demonstrations and other engagements with ELN vendors you are assessing.
