Science for the YouTube Set

The Journal of Visualized Experiments, the world’s first video-based scientific methods journal, is online and accepting submissions. Sample video demonstrations in the first online issue include the production of G. zeae ascospores for microarray experiments, as well as gene-gun transfection of hippocampal neurons. JoVE is strictly open access — there are no fees to access or contribute video articles — and the editorial process is a swift one. According to the journal’s web site, “articles will be reviewed within seven days from the day of submission, and published within seven days after acceptance.” It’ll be interesting to see how PubMed and other indexing database cite the videos.
