Extended access to videos in the JoVE database

28 September 2022

Teachers and researchers now have extended access via the University Library to the JoVE database, Journal of Visualized Experiments. The videos in the database describe various biological phenomena and experiments bit by bit and can be used, for example, in education as a supplement to textbooks and scientific articles.

JoVE publishes peer-reviewed experiments as videos. JoVE consists of three parts, JoVE Journal which is a journal that publishes experimental methods in the form of videos, JoVE Encyclopedia of Experiments and JoVE Education, videos that describe in detail various biological phenomena - some at a very basic level, others more advanced.

The content of the database can be used to complement textbooks and scientific articles in biology, medicine and chemistry courses. If you want a group of students to be able to watch a video to complement a description in a textbook or scientific article, you search for it and can retrieve a link (for example https://www.jove.com/t/5541 ) and information on how to cite it: JoVE Science Education Database. Genetics. Genetic Crosses. JoVE, Cambridge, MA, (2022).
For all films, there is clear information on who the authors are (that's the name the database uses) and where they are affiliated.

Researchers can either suggest that a film on a topic be produced or submit a script as a proposal for a video that JoVE records, or simply record a video themselves and submit it to JoVE, which then decides whether it can be published.
It uses peer review to decide what to include in its collection.

The database was started by Moshe Pritsker, who went from being a researcher at Princeton University to founding JoVE.
