AbstractThe project « JoBoCo: Journal de bord et de connaissance » aimed at developing a dynamic and collaborative tool assisting the mentoring of research activities for graduate students as well at providing training on good laboratory practice. The current practices of professors-researchers as well as the needs of the students-researchers were assessed, along with a review of existing collaborative tools. Following this exercise, several software solutions were evaluated and a system based on the integration of Group-Office, Mendeley and WordPress software was selected. This integrated system is now used by several research teams in acoustics at the E´cole de technologie supe´rieure and should, once the system deployment and user training issues resolved, substantially help the professors actively involved in training and mentoring of graduate students.
