JoVE is delighted to announce the publication of its 2000th article on Tuesday, October 9, 2012. This fantastic milestone comes as JoVE approaches the 6th anniversary of its first release of video content. Since then, the journal has grown significantly and now publishes over 50 video-articles per month in the journal's six sections.
"JoVE empowers scientists by visualizing their research. Our publication of 2000 video-articles, authored by scientists from leading universities around the world, is the best proof that the scientific community is adopting JoVE at an increasing rate. We are proud of this achievement, and determined to reach our goal to visualize all scientific research," said Dr. Moshe Pritsker, JoVE’s co-founder and CEO.
2012 has been a significant year for JoVE. In July, JoVE launched Applied Physics, its first expansion out of biological sciences. Instead, the section focuses on engineering and physical science. JoVE achieved another milestone this year when it reached its 400th institutional subscription, a 600% increase in subscribing institutions since 2010. JoVE’s growth has been supported by an international community of scientists, professors and librarians from some of the world's leading institutions, including Harvard, MIT, Yale, Stanford, Oxford, and Cambridge.
Appropriately, JoVE's 2000th article belongs to the Applied Physics section, and demonstrates angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy at temperatures approaching absolute zero. The procedure works to measure the kinetic energy of photons that are ejected from solids, a phenomenon that Albert Einstein received the Nobel Prize for discovering in 1921. The article is a joint publication from an international group of scientists based in Dresden, Germany.
Concerning JoVE's expansion, Director of Content Dr. Aaron Kolski-Andreaco told us, "JoVE's transition into applied physics represents our continued commitment to the visualization of science, irrespective of discipline. Going forward, we hope to continue expanding to new areas, such as chemistry, to become a more comprehensive resource for researchers everywhere."
