A look at JoVE: The Journal of Visualized Experiments

The Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) is a peer-reviewed, PubMed/Medline-indexed video journal devoted to presenting scientific research in a video format. The content available through this database is filmed at universities around the world and offers a valuable teaching tool for instructors as well as an excellent reference tool for students and researchers alike. JoVE’s international community of scientists and videographers includes over 9,300 authors covering fields such as biology, medicine, chemistry and physics.


Content can be found within JoVE through keywords (separated by commas) or by reviewing “Sections” or category. Section listings highlight recent videos articles as well as the most popular video articles. Selecting a section topic will allow the user to further refine their results by keywords, publication date or ranges, author, institution, or select additional section topics to find videos that encompass more than one topic  (e.g. Chemistry and Neuroscience).


The license agreement allows for use of JoVE videos in course packs and the classroom (please contact Greenblatt Library or your liaison/embedded librarian with any usage questions you may have). The JoVE database can be accessed from the Greenblatt Library homepage under the Databases link. Further assistance can be obtained during normal library hours at 706-721-3441 or via email at libref@gru.edu.
