JoVE: Journal of visualized experiments

JCU Library has subscribed to JoVE - a new resource that is a cross between a journal and a video streaming service. JoVE is a peer reviewed, PubMed indexed journal devoted to the publication of biological, medical, chemical and physical research in a video format.

JoVE uses video technology to capture the intricacies of life science research. Visualization greatly facilitates the understanding and efficient reproduction of both basic and complex experimental techniques, and so addresses two of the biggest challenges faced by today's life science research community:
i) low transparency and poor reproducibility of biological experiments, and
ii) time and labor-intensive nature of learning new experimental techniques.

JoVE can be accessed via the JCU Library catalogue.

Check out the short video to find out more about JoVE.
