Data management is in general a major problem in research but the joint experimental and computational aspects of CII research, and the tendency for this work to be collaborative, makes the data management a very time consuming task. Research projects in Southampton over the last 5 years have covered many aspects of good practice and generated software and tools to help. One useful tool is the electronic research or laboratory notebook that facilitates the initial collection of data and information in a digital form. The Southampton LabTrove software is a researcher centric, web based, cloud enabled, system that looks a bit like a blog and enables data, records, discussions to be recorded and sharing and collaboration in a controlled manner.If any members of CII would like to try the the software please contact Jeremy Frey.
