LabArchives – Electronic Lab Notebook SoftwareLab Cycle

UAB and the Research Office are pleased to announce the launch of LabArchives, LLC, Electronic Lab Notebook software.

LabArchives addresses the obligations UAB must meet to securely store federally-funded research data. LabArchives simplifies lab research data process by eliminating the loss or mishandling of research data. It preserves all data entries and retains revision histories for all entries and pages. 

LabArchives gives PIs control over access to data in notebooks and prevents unauthorized copying and export of data by lab personnel or others.

With LabArchives, UAB is equipped to protect intellectual property- every entry is name, date and time stamped. Pages can be “frozen” with both PI and witness signatures. This documentation also helps faculty and administration respond to allegations of misconduct. LabArchives will provide our research community with multiple tools, integrations and functionalities to enhance research including, for example, archives of lab meeting notes, and a chemical inventory tool.

Two final points, LabArchives is available at no cost to users or departments and there is no limit on data storage space.

LabArchives works with the following browsers: Chrome, Edge, Firefox and Safari, however, it does NOT support Internet Explorer.
