What are Open Source Notebooks?

Open-notebook science is the practice of making the entire primary record of a research project publicly available online as it is recorded. This involves placing the personal, or laboratory, notebook of the researcher online along with all raw and processed data, and any associated material, as this material is generated. 


Open Lab/Notebooks : Laboratory research records, diaries, journals, workbooks etc. offered online free of cost with terms that allow reuse and redistribution of the recorded material.

Open Science Source & Worksflows

Open Science workflows: A sequence of processes scientists make to administer and disseminate convoluted scientific examinations offered online and free of cost allowing the reuse of the material.

Open Source in Open Science: Software where the source code is available free of cost with terms that allow dissemination and adaptation.
