Open-access publication in JoVE receives sponsorship from Carl Zeiss MicroImaging

October 11, 2011

The Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) will partner with Carl Zeiss Microscopy to support the sharing of scientific information through open access.

JoVE is the first and only peer-reviewed video journal indexed in PubMed and MEDLINE. Zeiss, a world-leading manufacturer of microscope technology based in Germany, will sponsor the publication of three open access video articles. For the three articles selected for publication, the JoVE team will film and edit the video article. Though the cost of the video is being sponsored, the final articles will undergo the same rigorous peer-review process as other JoVE content.

"Because these videos will be open to the public, this partnership with Zeiss will enable access to content that otherwise wouldn't be available," said Dr. Phill Jones, Editorial Director at JoVE.

Video publication is especially effective for demonstration of microscopy research techniques.

"As learning new techniques from written protocols can be challenging, Carl Zeiss Microscopy launched a campaign to support publication of a select number of microscropy protocols in JoVE," said Strategic Marketing Manager at Zeiss, Dr. Maya Everett.

"Our goal is both to support our customers who wish to publish in this video format as well as provide important training tools to scientists who are new to these techniques."
