Subscription Information

Most JoVE Articles Require a Subscription

As with many other science journals, a subscription is required to view most JoVE articles. If you find JoVE useful for your studies/research, please make a recommendation to librarians at your institution so they can purchase a subscription. If you would like us to contact your librarian on your behalf, please email us at Sorry, but no individual subscriptions are available at this time.

Why does JoVE require subscriptions?

Most JoVE video articles are filmed and edited by video professionals. Since video production is very expensive, the cost per article for JoVE is much higher than for traditional, text-only publications. It is not possible to cover the costs of video production based on the typical open-access model, in which fees are typically collected from academic authors. Consequently, we made the difficult decision to make a large portion of our content only available to paid subscribers in order to cover these costs.
