Question about lab logs - (Jul/12/2012 )

Hi I'm doing an internship in a lab this summer, I'm a beginner in the field and I just saw the lab log of a researcher it was clear enough but I think I couldn't totally link some results with the experiment log.

I was wondering whether it existed some official benchmark about lab logs that would explain how to manage a lab log, for example which data we should write on which document so everything is very clear, should we regroup data by date or by exepriment etc...7

Thank's :)


Good laboratory practice regulations surely contain a chapter about that. They're a benchmark, but complicated and it depends where you work, if you need to follow them exactly (though it's usually always a good idea to work at least similar to these rules, though much of the red tape you can leave out then)....
