Abstract

Some facts to begin with:

  • 60–90 % of scientific articles cannot be reproduced because the methods used and described lack clarity and depth
  • The scientific publishing format is almost the same as 450 years ago. Research has, however, becoming more and more complex over time
  • 65 % of people are visual learners. Videos, in addition to complementary text protocols, offers more clarity, productivity, and reproducibility

An innovative solution:

JoVE is more than a journal or a database. It is a productivity tool that was born from practical necessities and aims at bringing state of the art video demonstrations to the scientific community. Adding the visual component to the still rigid scientific publication landscape, research and education can greatly benefit from the media formats of the „Information Age“. JoVE advances modern science by providing the resources it needs to grow and develop.
