Perfect for Behavior

This journal is absolutely perfect for taking with me while running behavior on my mice - much easier to transport in and out of animal facilities, behavior rooms, etc. than my lab notebook. I love writing in felt pen ink and some journals have had issues where the ink bleeds through to the other side of the page, but I haven't had any issues with this one! Very happy with the paper weight and quality :) and the dotted grid help keep my writing organized in a straight line and drawing tables a breeze.

almost there!

Love the cover, love the thickness - perfect for individual writing/experimenting projects. But the paper is just too thin. I like writing with gel pens, and the bleed-through and shadowing is just not good. I pay to be able to write on both sheets of the paper. And one of the reasons I still handwrite is because I like the experience of writing out equations, proofs, observations, measurements, etc. If my gel pens are bleeding through, there is no way I would be able to use my fountain pens which hold my waterproof/water resistant inks - something critical when working around liquids. Suggestion: Work with Tomoe River Paper out of Japan. They have the same commitment to the environment that you do AND you won't have to compromise on sheet thickness. Even their 52gsm does amazing with my fountain pens, and they're a dream with my gel pens. This type of paper is what I expect when I am paying so much for a soft cover notebook. maybe also look at what Underbelly is doing with their notebooks? I got one of theirs when my little brother got one in a free treat bag at one of their tables. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it took my fountain pen ink with no shadowing, ghosting, or bleed-through. I want to be able to say that about Cognitive Surplus notebooks.

Love this design

I buy this as a gift, I love that is light and simple. It has many detail small drawings related to general science and research. I recommend to cover it using contact paper because the soft version is more fragile.
