Welcome to Jupyter: Improving collaboration and reproduction in psychological research by using a notebook system

Jupyter Notebook, an open-source interactive web application for the data science and scientific computing community (and with some of the features of an electronic laboratory notebook), has been publicly available since 2015, helping scientists make computational records of their research. In this 2018 tutorial article by Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena's Phillipp Sprengholz, the installation procedures and features are presented, particularly in the context of aiding psychological researchers with their efforts in making research more reproducible and shareable.

Introduction to Laboratory Informatics

This is a collection of free online introductory laboratory informatics courses developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL). The first two courses follow the journey of a specimen through the laboratory and explores the generation and transmission of data and results within and outside of the laboratory. A third course on laboratory informatics systems is in development. Participants can earn Professional Acknowledgment for Continuing Education® (P.A.C.E.®) credits upon completion.
