Seeing is understanding

JoVE — Journal of Visualized Experiments

If I haven’t managed to convince you of the power of visualizing information yet then try checking out this link for the Journal of Visualized Experiments, JoVE and I will bet you will “see” what I am talking about.

JoVE is a peer reviewed, PubMed indexed journal devoted to the publication of biological research in a video format.

According to the website, JoVE was established as a new tool in life science publication and communication, with participation of scientists from leading research institutions. JoVE takes advantage of video technology to capture and transmit the multiple facets and intricacies of life science research.

Visualization greatly facilitates the understanding and efficient reproduction of both basic and complex experimental techniques, thereby addressing 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 is just one more in a growing number of examples, of the power of visualizing information, and the undeniable shift in the way we will increasingly communicate with one another.
