JoVE, the video-publication for biological research, is now listed on PubMed

Posted on: August 24, 2008

I had posted on this really cool online video journal called Jove which is sort of like Youtube for scientists. The scientific videos are peer reviewed and is now also accepted for indexing in PubMed and MEDLINE. Great idea and implementation.

JoVE is the first and only video-publication to be included in these databases maintained by the National Library of Medicine (NLM). The decision was made by the NLM advisory committee, Literature Selection Technical Review Committee, which is composed of the authorities in the field of biomedicine, such as researchers, physicians, editors, health science librarians and historians. This committee evaluates the scientific quality of publications and typically approves only 20-25% of the applications. The name assigned in

Inclusion in PubMed/MEDLINE is a big milestone for JoVE, and for the scientific publishing in general. It demonstrates the official acceptance of new approaches to science communication, such as video online, by the scientific community. Overall, it will increase the interest of the scientists to communicate their findings in video, making biological sciences more transparent and efficient.

This is fantastic. I am glad that other sources of information are being vindicated.

How would one access pubmed?
