An indicator of the success of an Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) implementation is the level of system adoption afforded by the research scientists. A good adoption litmus test is the retirement of all legacy data recording and manipulation systems. If your researchers still use Excel spreadsheets, paper lab notebooks or other paper or electronic based systems then either you haven’t finished your ELN implementation yet, or your ELN implementation has not realized its full potential!
For many early adopters of ELN the results of their projects have been disappointing. In fact, certain of these early adopters have made the decision to start over using an ELN from a different product vendor. What caused these failures? How have these failures been addressed by ELN product vendors? How can you ensure that your ELN implementation will be a success?
Join us for this one hour, complimentary webinar in which we examine the reasons why ELNs fail to realize their full potential and what can be done to improve your chances of success.
- Why moving to an ELN is often difficult for established research scientists
- Why “paper under glass” is only the start of the ELN journey
- Strategies for realizing the full potential of ELN
- The balance between creativity and structure
