It is simple. You submit your manuscript. If accepted by editorial and peer review, your article will be published. JoVE will then film a video of your technique if you are located within our Videographer Network. We have videographers located across 5 continents. Check here to see if we can film in your location. If you're outside the Videographer Network, you can produce and submit your own video. Any questions? Email email@example.com.
Manuscript Preparation and Review
- Write your manuscript using this template. Submit it here.
- All submitted manuscripts undergo editorial review to verify compliance with JoVE's guidelines.
- After passing editorial review, your manuscript will be sent to peer review by experts in relevant fields of research.
- Once it successfully passes peer review, your manuscript will be considered in-press. On average, it takes about 2 months after submission.
Filming & Video Production
- After your manuscript is accepted, a JoVE scriptwriter will work to create a video script for filming your experiments. You will approve the script prior to filming.
- A JoVE production coordinator will schedule filming at your laboratory.
- On the day of the filming, a JoVE professional videographer will come to your laboratory (or filming location) and film your experiments according to the video script. The filming typically takes 6-8 hours. The filming happens in the lab where the experiments are done, and the rest of your lab can continue working with no interruption.
- After filming, the JoVE staff edits the video, adds a professional voice-over, and presents the video for your approval.
Publication and Indexing
- After your approval, your article and video will be published on the JoVE website. Your article abstract will appear in PubMed approximately two weeks after publication. JoVE is indexed in MEDLINE/PubMed, Web of Science, Scopus, SciFinder and other scientific indexing services.
