The research data management (RDM) services at our university have got a request from a research group within organic chemistry asking for advice on what kind of electronic lab notebooks (ELN) they should use. They have done some review and concluded that Signals from PerkinElmer would do a good job.
Since the RDM policy of our university is promoting open science, our imediate thought was that a open source ELN would probably be more suitable. Some possible candidates would be sciNOTE and Indigo ELN. However, we don't have any clear guidelines on use of ELN at our university yet.
Therefore, I would like to ask whether anyone in the Chemistry Research Data IG has any thoughts or recommendations for ELNs for chemistry.
Any feedback is highly appreciated.
