Tailor Your JoVE Subscription to Maximize Productivity For Your Patrons

The world of scientific research and education is constantly expanding and evolving. We work hard to do the same. JoVE offers two distinct resources, JoVE Video Journal and JoVE Science Education, and the option to license all our content or to customize your subscription.

Our case studies have shown that JoVE:

  • Enables professional labs to train new scientists at least 20% faster
  • Reduces lab training time for students by up to 75%
  • Serves as a vital knowledge transfer platform linking labs around the world

Video Journal

Our peer-reviewed journal combines high-quality video demonstrations of experiments with a detailed text protocol, allowing researchers around the globe to learn from each other easily and efficiently. This saves a lot of their time, money and laboratory resources. The fields covered include: Biology, Neuroscience, Medicine, Bioengineering, Engineering, Genetics, Cancer Research, Immunology and Infection, Chemistry, Behavior, Environment, Developmental Biology, and Biochemistry.

Science Education

Educators and students use our innovative video collections in the JoVE Science Education Library to better teach and learn key concepts and fundamental techniques at the undergraduate course level. These simple, easy-to-understand video demonstrations cover a wide range of STEM subjects including Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Psychology, Clinical Medicine and Engineering.

JoVE today is a mature product line which is gaining in traction with contributions of people who want to publish [via video] and to share their experience in science. It's also a way that libraries want to provide a learning experience to the science education ... because it builds on observation, it builds on field experience, it builds on the laboratory environment, it teaches how to deal with results and to make sure they're accurate. It promotes ... best practices in doing science. For that, I think it has a tremendous potential.

The video brings the research to life and I think that’s important for a user community … it is a time-saver in many ways as well. When you read a paper it’s very flat, it’s one-dimensional, but when you see and listen and are able to stop and play, I think you are able to learn more, learn quicker, analyze what you’re seeing, and you’re able to replicate the experiment in a better format.
