Notebooks represent an exciting new approach that will considerably facilitate collaborative physics analysis.
They are a modern and widely-adopted tool to express computational narratives comprising, among other elements, rich text, code and data visualisations. Several notebook flavours exist, although one of them has been particularly successful: the Jupyter open source project.
We discuss through examples and use-cases how the notebook approach boosts the productivity of physicists, engineers and non-coding lab scientists. Opportunities in the field of outreach, education and open-data initiatives are also reviewed.
