Abstract

Continuity in research group collective knowledge is critical for running a successful research program but in an undergraduate research lab, this can be particularly challenging. A wiki site dedicated to the research laboratory, a lab wiki, can bridge gaps in student-to-student knowledge transfer and contribute to longevity of a research program. A lab wiki is an organized, easily accessible, collaborative resource that can contain tutorials, group-specific directions, links to resources and guides to writing papers or proposals. The wiki language is easy for students to pick up and contributes to their participation in preserving group knowledge. This tutorial introduces the concept of a lab wiki, the advantages of it, example content and practical implementation advice.
