Filmed at the world’s top scientific institutions, JoVE videos bring to life the intricate details of cutting-edge experiments enabling efficient learning and replication of new research methods and technologies. Producing 1,000s new videos every year, JoVE is a must-have resource for scientists in academia and industry.
JoVE educational videos empower effective teaching of science concepts and laboratory methods in undergraduate and graduate courses at universities and colleges. These videos enable quick in-depth comprehension of complex STEM subjects to increase student engagement and learning outcomes, and support innovative teaching initiatives such as blended learning and flipped classroom.
How it all started
JoVE was born from the same emotion that has led to countless innovations: frustration. Our co-founder and CEO Moshe Pritsker was a young researcher working in a stem cell lab at Princeton. Unable to complete a crucial experiment from text articles alone and without any local colleagues to show him the intricate steps, he was struck with his “Eureka!” moment: why not complement published experiments with a video showing the steps in vivid detail?
Shortly after finishing his Ph.D., he traded a lab coat for a video camera and JoVE was born, changing 450 years of scientific publishing tradition. Now 10 years later, JoVE remains the first and only peer-reviewed scientific video journal, publishing more than 100 new videos each month.
