People in all types of industries are thinking about how (and if) they can get their jobs done from home right now. If you’re a STEM researcher or instructor there’s a good chance you are, too.

‘Remote work’ sounds reserved for writers, coders, web designers and the like but STEM industries can ‘go remote’ if needed. Electronic lab notebooks (ELNs) like LabArchives make it a cinch.

Here’s the low down on how to work ‘away’ in the research and education spaces:


Scientific inquiry requires us to work together. With LabArchives you can collaborate remotely.

Access: View data and all prior changes to data anytime, anywhere and from any device.

Collaborate: Share data, leave comments for collaborators and publish some or all of your data for others to build on – all without leaving the platform.

Leverage: Integrations with SnapGene, Qeios, BioMed Central, Microsoft Office, Google, Box, DataCite, GraphPad, FlowJo, iChemLabs, InCommon and Typeset.

Remote Researcher: Elizabeth New, Associate Professor at the University of Sydney and fluorescent sensor researcher, has used LabArchives to conduct her work while on maternity leave….

“LabArchives has been so handy since I’ve been on leave. I can see my group’s work at any time. They create fortnightly reports for me and I comment on everything in LabArchives. It’s been so easy to go over things together even if I’m not in the office. It has been invaluable actually.”

Access your research anytime, anywhere and from any device.


If you’re being asked to take your course online this semester, LabArchives has got you (and your students) covered.

Start today: Upload your course content fast with a free account. We can help you get your course up and running free of charge.

Access: Roll your course out to students, track their engagement and push out new content anytime, anywhere and from any device.

Collaborate: Communicate with students and TAs, assign work, receive completed work, leave feedback and grade – all without leaving the platform.

Leverage: Integrations with OpenStax digital textbooks, the Lab Builder suite of ready made course content and sync with your learning management system (BlackBoard, Moodle, Canvas).

Remote Instructor: Wendy Riggs, Biology Instructor at College of the Redwoods, used LabArchives to take her lab course online…

“I had already developed most of my teaching materials for a face to face course. LabArchives has been absolutely clutch in making my online class doable. Everything students need can live inside of LabArchives, and this is really important because the fewer places students have to go to get their work done, the better.”

Instructors can roll out course content and students can complete work within LabArchives… from anywhere and with any device.
