JoVE for the Developing World

Word that JoVE will now be offering free subscriptions to institutions in the developing world is making its way around the globe!

Award-winning science writer David Bradley, who is based in Cambridge, UK, recently wrote about JoVE on his blog Sciencebase:

JoVE Around the World

JoVE is hoping to address scientific information inequality across the globe and has now made free subscriptions to Journal of Visualized Experiments through the HINARI initiative to developing nations in South America, Asia and Africa.

JoVE was originally developed to increase productivity in biological research, and is the only science video journal indexed in PubMed so far. The journali publishes video articles demonstrating advanced experiments performed in major laboratories (including Harvard, MIT, Stanford and Yale).

According to it creators: “Seeing experiments, rather than translating text, saves scientists and students time and money when learning new research techniques.” They add that, “Access to this visual content is especially important in developing countries.”
