Suggested pre-reading What this web page adds
  1. Introduction to research
This web-page describes what a research logbook is. Reading this will make you understand what you need to and what you should put into it to make it future proof.

A research logbook is used to note everything that is done during a project. There are two main purposes for using a research logbook:

  • Firstly to assist the project leader (and the project team if there is one). If things are not registered then it is easy to forget decisions taken months or years back in time.
  • Secondly to enable a review of research activities in case the results are challenged or any other problem appears that may warrant a review. The research logbook must be locked for this reason, meaning that everything is written in stone (can not be changed or deleted).

A research logbook can either be electronic or consist of hard copies where you write manually. A simple Word file is unsuitable since it can easily be tampered with. An example of an electronic research logbook: http://au.researchweb.org/is/jcu/help/projectlogbook
