Discussing the vital aspects of how to make a proper and permanent record of research work, this work goes beyond the mechanical of simply filling in the notebook pages with details on the skills needed to create proper records of research, observations, and results. It helps to increase awareness of what is being done in the lab, and to develop a flexible style of notekeeping that will serve a variety of research environments. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
