True Scientific Knowledge Management In R&D: Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELNs)

One tool holds a unique position among R&D informatics systems. Unlike other systems, electronic laboratory notebooks (ELNs) both produce data and consume information. An ELN’s ability to capture data, observations, experiences, and context is particularly powerful when combined with other data pipelining tools. The ability to link key pieces of data and mine experiments captured in the ELN for insights fuels true scientific knowledge management. This use case describes the broad organizational benefits that BIOVIA Workbook made possible for a global pharmaceutical company, highlighting how the system is supporting efforts to gain predictive control over key processes in Research and Development.
