The SciLog Electronic Logbook

SciLog is an electronic lab notebook (ELN) developed and operated at PSI, which organises information captured during an experiment, both by humans and machines, as messages in a chat. It aims to replace paper notebooks often used during experiments, to jot unstructured information and to keep track of to-dos.
