Neil Saunders encourages researchers to think generically about the nature of their work so they can structure their data in a coherent way. All experiments, he says, have common features: the day and time it occurred, the purpose, protocol, and results. When each experiment run is thought of in that way, it is then easier to use electronic lab notebooks and breaks up the day-to-day activities in the lab. Saunders also refers to another blog, by Cameron Neylon, whose posts go into more detail.
