CANCELLED: How to use an electronic lab notebook

This webinar has been cancelled due to a low number of participants.

Documentation of research data is essential during the entire research process. Proper documentation of data and the research process in general, will increase the transparency, reusability, and reproducibility of research. Proper documentation might also make your workflow more efficient.

In this webinar, we will highlight the advantages of using an electronic lab notebook (ELN) and explain how it fits in regard to the Principles and guidelines for management of research data at UiT. The webinar will give you useful information about ELNs in general, how they can be used during the active phase of research data management, and will demonstrate the ELN provider RSpace Enterprise, which is now available to UiT researchers and students. RSpace Enterprise is a flexible ELN that can be used for many types of laboratory work and data management and is considered a legally valid lab notebook. The service also offers a Laboratory Inventory Management System (LIMS).

The service is especially useful for research groups and group leaders, as it allows for transparency and collaboration. Join the webinar to learn about the functionalities and possibilities an ELN and LIMS offer!

The webinar builds on the module “How to structure and document research data” (for information about the different webinars, see

You may send in questions in advance (through a Padlet) that you want to discuss during the webinar. More information about this will be given well in advance.

The webinar is hosted by Noortje Haugstvedt and Katie Smart.
