An electronic lab notebook ideally represents one component within an entire system of tools for research data management and is able to drive forward open science via the transparent documentation of experiments and the publication of data. What examples of best practice are there? And what needs to be taken into account when introducing them? An ELN Guide, recently published by ZB MED, gives comprehensive support.
we were talking with Beatrix Adam and Birte Lindstädt Introducing an electronic lab notebook (ELN) often represents the initial spark that prompts people to reflect on their research data management and take further steps. We spoke with research data experts Beatrix Adam and Birte Lindstädt from the ZB MED, who have recently published the ELN Guide “Electronic lab notebooks in the context of Research Data Management and good scientific practice – a guide for life sciences” (“Elektronische Laborbücher im Kontext von Forschungsdatenmanagement und guter wissenschaftlicher Praxis – ein Wegweiser für die Lebenswissenschaften” – link in German language); it discusses the […]
we were talking with Romain Féret The University of Lille has set up a service supporting researchers (Link in French language; short service description in English language) with their research projects from the beginning. We talked to Romain Féret who is in charge of open access and research data management at the library of the University of Lille. Your library has set up a special open science service dedicated to research projects. What are the service’s goals? The first goal of our service is to increase the quality of our researchers’ grant proposals and to improve their projects’ feasibility. It […]
]If open science aspects of research projects are not planned in the early stage of writing a grant proposal, a lot of problems may occur during the projects’ lifetime. On the other hand, offering support to researchers is an opportunity for libraries to have happy patrons and build long lasting relationships with researchers that become the best ambassadors for open science. Romain Féret gives an insight into the open science service of the University of Lille and its experiences.

we were talking with Prof Dr Heike Neuroth Prof Dr Heike Neuroth is Deputy Chairwoman of RDA Germany and a member of the GO FAIR steering committee. In the interview, she shares her assessment of promoting FAIR Data and Open Science. Ms. Neuroth, on the basis of your many years of experience in the scientific field, how, in your opinion, can good scientific practices be promoted with regard to research data management? Germany seems to be already quite well set up to me. There are currently a number of funding programmes both at the German Research Foundation (DFG) and […]
