JoVE is making procedures easier to understand
Dr. Reiner Bleher, Research Assistant Professor, Northwestern University
This is a unique journal that publishes videos and protocols of experimental techniques and in this way successfully makes sophisticated procedures easier to understand. This is of great value for researchers who want to add techniques to their lab, as well as for any researcher who needs sound information about a particular experimental method. The journal covers a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines. I find it very helpful for researchers working in life sciences, and light and electron microscopy.
Video articles help save time and money
Pinfen Yang, Associate Professor, Marquette University
Unlike the traditional journals, JoVE is an on-line access journal including written documents as well as video recordings. The recording is particularly important for observing experimental procedures, which usually are over-simplified in most of the traditional journals. In fact, only videos could adequately convey many procedures. For example, I learned how to inject zebrafish embryos and mate green algae by watching video published JoVE over and over again. Although the procedures have been published in prints, JoVE videos helped us save money and time to conduct new technologies or experiments properly.
Giving back to the scientific community
Dr. Dharmendra K. Singh, Postdoc, Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research
I may have developed a unique protocol, but it is not mine alone... My JoVE publication allows me to give back to the scientific community and share the work that the NIH helped fund.
A novel approach
Dr. John Cooke, Professor of Medicine, Associate Director, Stanford Cardiovascular Institute
JoVE is a very unique and useful resource for researchers, graduate students, postdocs and undergraduates in science. This novel visualization approach will improve reproducibility of experimental studies, and increase the efficiency of research and education in the biological sciences.
Why do you publish in JoVE?
Dr. Jonathan T. Butcher, Associate Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Cornell University
I published novel results of a challenging isolation protocol in a high impact journal, but other labs had a hard time replicating our results so we decided to publish our methods in JoVE. The video format conveys complicated methods significantly better than text alone and helped to validate our novel results.
A Godsend for researchers
Balakrishna Lokeshwar, Professor and Co-Director of research, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine
I enjoy each and every article published in Jove. This is Godsend for many researchers engaged in experimental science.
Why do you love JoVE?
Evelyn P. Council, Associate Director for Collection Development, Fayetteville State University
I truly appreciate the concept that JoVE embraces of visually presenting experiments that students can experience without the barriers that scientific jargon can sometimes put up. I remember as a high school student, some of my friends who took chemistry without the benefit of having a laboratory. My father would tutor them, but frequently he would discover that something as simple as realizing that a diagram in a book included a glass beaker, could make the experiment understandable. Many students today have grown up as visual learners and shy away from Science because the experiments appear daunting when explained verbally or written. JoVE uncovers the steps and gives students a chance to be mentored by scientists who are practicing their field. I feel that JoVE visually expands students’ horizons to realize that the steps that experiments require are just as much of an adventure as the WIII and You Tube videos that they love to construct, with the added bonus of contributing to the welfare of humanity. The scientific method becomes more than a paper exercise but an extension of real life that can be repeated as often as streaming allows. You can be an expert in a field, but until you can make the complicated plain to the least expert, you have not taught. I believe JoVE is an excellent tool to educate.
Easy to Set Up, Easy to Use, Easy to Recommend
Ann Brew, Cancer Research UK
"As a librarian, I found setting up the access to JOVE incredibly easy. The site is easy to use, works with all three browsers that we use across the charity, and allows us to seamlessly list JOVE with all our other journals. The support and information about the journal, along with promotional material, helped get the word out to our scientists. Not only are they happy to use it, but we’ve also been approached by colleagues in the field, wanting to know how they can subscribe to it – not wanting their users to miss out ! My favourite thing is that JOVE is indexed on PubMed so that my users can do one search and get JOVE results coming up in their list, rather than having to search the journal’s website."
Fresh & Unique
University of Michigan: Mark MacEachern
The University of Michigan - where I'm located - has a JoVE subscription (which I've needed to take advantage of a few times). The video approach is interesting and certainly provides a fresh & unique twist to scholarly publication. Love it!
This was the best time we've ever had publishing
Marco Vignuzzi, PhD, Viral Populations and Pathogenesis Group (PVP), Institut Pasteur, France
"This was the best time we've ever had publishing something! And I can't believe how great it has been for us. First of all, we can now write the shortest methods sections ever in our other papers, which is always great given space issues! And we've received tons of feedback already by people that have seen it! I've recommended this to a number of people here at Pasteur. It's been fantastic being part of the new generation style papers!"
PhD student about article "Murine Model of Hindlimb Ischemia"
This video is the most important and useful among all the resources a new phd student could find to do his research on PAD.
Broad Institute: Assistant Professor Pardis Sabeti Ph.D.
I just watched it [Hi-C: A Method to Study the Three-dimensional Architecture of Genomes], and it is really excellent. The quality of your videos continue to amaze me.
Best of the Web
Uninorte / Laureate University: Undergraduate Student Mario Ribeiro
Your website is the best on the entire internet for biotech students
Best Teaching Material
Thank you. This is the best teaching material that I've seen on line.
Effective Way of Communication
University of Florida: Professor David W. Smith
I have not yet used the mouse olfactory recording video you allowed me to download today, but I have used links to other Jove videos on several other occasions. I find them to be very effective ways to communicate different concepts to students - a picture may be worth a 1000 words, the videos save me millions.
Good for me
Animal Technician Carolina Mourelle
Hi, I m an animal technician and this article is very good for me. Thanks for this work.
Video is Amazing
University of Florida: Professor of Genetics and Microbiology / co-host 'This week in Virology' Rich Condit
You can't figure out how to do this stuff just from reading the literature, you have to have somebody show you ... this is amazing!
University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine: Associate Professor Neil Hukriede, Ph.D.
Very nice work on your part. I have had several compliments from the people in the scientific community.
