Laboratory Books

Laboratory books are primarily used by scientists to keep track of progress on various experiments performed in the laboratory. They are organized by day then by experiment to allow easy referral back to a specific day. Referring back to a laboratory book is often necessary when writing a research article, thesis or report on research performed, so an efficient method of organization is important to make writing much easier.

Compact Laboratory Book

This template is useful for keeping track of progress made on different experiments in a laboratory. It features a compact layout for clean reading with each day clearly distinct from other days. Multiple experiments and sub-experiments can be cited for each day allowing the tracking of progress on multiple different avenues of research more easily. The template includes examples of a table, figure, equation, bibliography and citation. Hyperlinks to citations, figures and pages means the lab book is easy to navigate for later information retrieval during writing up.

Daily Laboratory Book

This template is useful for those working in a laboratory where records must be kept for academic or commercial purposes. Often times working in the laboratory means scrawling messy notes in a physical book so this template helps to make a laboratory book more organized and digitally searchable. The template features a cover page, hyperlinked table of contents, daily logs of progress made on individual experiments and a formulae and media recipes section. The template is organized in such a way that each day is simple to add to the book.
