I am hoping to find a system for everyone in my lab to use which would serve as lab notebooks for everyone and allow both written materials to be uploaded and also allow a mixture of different electronic materials such as bioinformatics workflows, pictures, videos, data files, etc.
I have dug around a bit and even tried things on and off (e.g., OpenWetWare) and not really found anything that seems to do everything I want it to.
What I want in a system
- Easy to use
- Archived, versioned
- Manages / stores / tracks all research data
- Open source
- Deals with diverse data types and notes (e.g., data analysis, fields work, lab work, videos, pictures, etc etc etc)
- Supports collaboration
- Encourages reproducibility, etc
And I am sure all sorts of other things
So I am seeking input from the community. Do people have recommendations for electronic lab notebooks that can manage everything done in your lab or research group?
