A partnership between the Journal of Visualized Experiments and big science publisher Wiley-Blackwell: the JoVE guys will give the technology, the art of making video experiments and Wiley provides the established network, audience on its Current Protocols site.
I wonder what will be the access status of those videos: current JoVE videos are freely available, while Current Protocols has pricey subscription rates (see screenshot).
Links: Alla Katsnelson, The Scientist: Online methods videos go mainstream:
“Rumors of JoVE’s deal with Wiley-Blackwell and other mainstream science publishers have been circulating in the blogosphere since late January. Moshe Pritsker, CEO of JoVE, told The Scientist this week that he had also signed similar deals with Annual Reviews and Springer Protocols.“
Update from Moshe Pritsker, JoVE chief: The protocols will be co-published, that is freely available on JoVE.
Thanks, Moshe, that’s good news.
