Ruro has updated its scalable electronic laboratory notebook, Sciency. Version 3.5 features a Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel add-on, enabling what the company describes as a seamless transfer of documentation into a Sciency ‘note’. These notes can be signed by the user, ensuring that further editing is prevented. Sciency 3.5 can also be linked to email accounts so that automatic emails can be sent to users informing them of a new activity in the ‘discussion’ section of a particular project – these sections are new in themselves and act in a similar way to internet discussion threads, by providing a place to leave feedback and ask questions.
