Our Mission:

 

To advance scientific research and education by increasing productivity, reproducibility, and efficiency of knowledge transfer for scientists, educators, and students worldwide through visual learning solutions.

The Idea of JoVE

JoVE began in response to a universally experienced problem within the world of biomedical science: today only 10-30% of published scientific articles can be successfully reproduced. As a result, scientists and researchers around the world end up spending months and years of time, effort, and funding simply trying to replicate the findings of other labs instead of advancing toward new discoveries.

When JoVE CEO and Co-Founder Dr. Moshe Pritsker ran into this same problem on his way to completing his Ph.D. at Princeton University, he developed an elegantly simple solution: filming experiments and publishing them in video format to make all the subtle, intricate techniques involved in research plainly visible for anyone to see and replicate.

Less than a year later JoVE was founded.

Since then, JoVE has evolved tremendously to produce and publish thousands of visualized experiments in a constantly growing variety of scientific fields. JoVE has also created a rapidly expanding database of essential laboratory techniques designed to improve science education at the undergraduate level.

All of these resources still serve the purpose they did when JoVE was first founded: to increase the reproducibility and productivity of science research and education.

Who We Are

JoVE (Journal of Visualized Experiments) is the world's first and only peer reviewed scientific video journal. Our headquarters is located in Cambridge, MA, U.S.A., and we maintain offices in London, U.K., and Melbourne, Australia. In all these locations around the globe, the JoVE team consists of hardworking and dedicated scientists, film makers, I.T. specialists, and business professionals all of whom are driven to change the way science research and education is done.

What We Do

Today, JoVE publishes high quality, highly engaging scientific video demonstrations in our Journal - designed for scientists and researchers - and in our Science Education video database - designed for faculty and students. Through these video demonstrations, users at subscribed institutions obtain:

With a constantly growing JoVE library of video resources from leading research laboratories around the world, scientists, educators, and students in different fields of study can find invaluable access to experimental methods and ideas that will propel their own discoveries in the years ahead.
