Electronic laboratory notebooks (ELNs) are gaining traction

Electronic laboratory notebooks (ELNS) are increasingly being used by researchers and scientists. “ELNs comprise software that helps researchers to document experiments, and that often has features such as protocol templates, collaboration tools, support for electronic signatures and the ability to manage the lab inventory". As younger individuals, who tend to expect and embrace electronic systems in general, begin to fill research roles, they are electing to use ELNs as well. Though use is growing, as there are currently 72 active ELN products, they are not yet ubiquitous.
