Lab Notebooks Document Inventive Activities

An appropriately maintained laboratory notebook can often mean the difference between gaining recognition for a discovery and not. U.S. patent law states that
inventorship is determined by the first to invent, not the first to file. (Foreign patent offices determine inventorship by the first-to-file method.) Your lab notebook can be the key piece of evidence in helping to make that determination. Click here for more from the Office of Technology Development of the University of Oklahoma
