The Analytical Laboratory (AnLab) is the annual readers' poll conducted by Analog magazine to determine the favorite stories, articles, and cover art published each year.

History The name derives from a monthly feature created by John W. Campbell in 1938, a poll of each issue's stories to determine which writer would receive a bonus payment. The monthly feature was abandoned after Campbell's death, then revived as an annual poll by Stanley Schmidt in 1979.
Comments Analog Jan. 1980 has an analysis of the monthly AnLab's from 1938 through 1976.
