Scientific work and research generate data - regardless of the discipline. In chemistry, the documentation of data and findings from experimental work was kept in handwritten form in so-called laboratory journals for a long time. In the meantime, of course, there are digital alternatives that not only have to deal with growing volumes of data but also with different data formats. This is the only way to ensure that data can be used and made available in the future.
