JoVE 2.0 makes science social and pop: video sharing, comments, interviews

redesigned JoVEYou must definitely check the completely redesigned, upgraded JoVE website to see the enhanced present of online science! Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) is an online journal publishing visualized (video-based) biological research studies. It was launched in November, 2006 and now due to the hard work and entrepreneurial spirit of editor Moshe Pritsker, web developer Nikita Bernstein and others it became a mature adventure, that is sporadic with its advanced features within the current online scientific community. What are the main novelties? Well, they are mostly technical and partly content related. First, on the right the videos have a cool textual chapter menu, so you can jump instantly to the part you are interested most. (See the picture below) Second, related to the protocol video Studying aggression in Drosophila (fruit flies) there is an interview with Edward Kravitz. I find the interview option a huge step forward, if it will be regular here besides the protocol videos, that has the chance to make JoVE and life sciences really popular on the web. Interviews can serve almost as videoblogs.

Third, if you are logged in, you can comment the videos and start a discussion and this is a big opportunity for life scientists to share video protocols and insider tricks and to learn techniques and repeat experiments properly.


Fourth, as in YouTube and many other broad scale video sites, you can now embed the video on your site/blog as the code is accessible, so video sharing is open. Unfortunately WordPress presently does not support to embed directly the videos of JoVE. I hope one day I can do that with JoVE videos simply just a way like this: [myjove=]

What comes next, JoVE? Blogs, videoblogs would be just fine! As JoVe is video-based it would be an ideal place to host scientific videoblogs.
