OSF Electronic Lab Notebook Template

The Open Science Framework (OSF) Electronic Lab Notebook Template is also available for Temple users. It can be thought of as a binder that brings together all lab notes and documents together in one place.


  • shares many features with the OSF Electronic Lab Notebook Template (see comparison below).
  • is designed specifically as an ELN, while OSF is a multi-use platform.
  • integrates more fully with lab workflows, including inventory and scheduling management.
  • provides tools for working with chemical structures and formulas.

Prior to adopting an ELN, check with your dean or department head.
