SAGE trials SciVee video platform

September 16, 2010

Los Angeles and San Diego, CA (September 16, 2010) SAGE, the world's leading independent publisher of academic journals, and SciVee, the leading video platform solutions provider to the scientific, technical and medical market, today announced a trial of the SciVee platform for three journals published by SAGE on behalf of the Association for Psychological Science. The three-month trial is designed to evaluate if SciVee video PubCasts will increase article views, broaden reader interest and promote authors. SAGE publishes more than 560 peer-reviewed journals. The journals included in the evaluation are Psychological Science, Psychological Science in the Public Interest and Current Directions in Psychological Science.

"SAGE is keenly focused on developing innovative new ways of disseminating scientific information," said Jayne Marks, SAGE Vice President and Editorial Director, Library Information Group. "There is growing interest from both readers and authors for more video and rich media within research articles. SciVee's pubcasts appear to be an excellent vehicle for adding this content."

The evaluation focuses on SciVee PubCasts, which are synchronized video abstracts that enable a reader to see and hear a scientist discuss selected sections of their online journal article. PubCasts offer a more engaging and dynamic way to present scientific knowledge than a text-only abstract. They also have been demonstrated to promote broader interest in the author's work and increase its impact through broader distribution and accessibility on the Internet.

"There is a clear trend toward more video and rich media in scientific publishing. SciVee is pleased to be working with a large, creative publisher like SAGE in defining this new era," said Marc Friedmann, CEO of SciVee.
