Section Citation

Show section content of other record

Overview

Different people might involved in preparing a protocol and perform an experiment. An experiment usually need to cite a protocol, and ideally display the content of the protocol in a ELN. However, it is not efficient to copy the same content again and again. Section Citation is designed for this situation: display the content from a protocol in an experiment. Or, more generally, display the data from a section in a record in one other record.

To meet the regulation requirement, a protocol shall not change in an experiment once signed. The widget enable you to do that via selecting one particular version of a record. The version is optional, you can still ignore the version to display the most recent data.

The Section Citation has been updated to allow any type of sections/widgets.
