How Video Publication of Laboratory Experiments Will Save Science

Experimental sciences including biology, medicine, physics and chemistry chronically suffer from low reproducibility of published studies. Recent experiments indicate that 70% to 90% of studies published in scientific journals are not reproducible. Even if partially true, these findings present difficult questions about the productivity of current scientific research. We believe that this phenomenon is due to the traditional text format of scientific journals, which cannot provide an adequate description of modern research techniques. This creates a critical problem of knowledge transfer for research and education. Addressing this challenge, a new generation of science journals such as JoVE employs online video to provide a systematic visualized publication of experimental studies. Visualization through video greatly facilitates understanding and learning, enhancing productivity in research and education. This presentation will discuss the development of scientific video publication, its technical challenges, implications for scholarly communication, acceptance in the academic and library community, and first-hand accounts from users of this medium.
