Principal investigators may find it beneficial to develop a standard operating procedures (SOPs) document or lab manual to be distributed to all group members. Below are some examples of what other principal investigators from Columbia and other institutions have created. Free SOP consulting and drafting services are available for Columbia PIs.

These tutorials are intended to be a resource for those conducting research that requires them to maintain a notebook, manage data and store samples. These tutorials are also available to Columbia researchers on Rascal; in the event a Columbia PI wishes to make the completion of these tutorials a requirement, Rascal can generate a certificate that demonstrates completion.
