UC Riverside Library is continuing its focus on expanding access to heavily demanded electronic content with a new local license to the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE).
JoVE is the world-leading producer and provider of science videos with the mission to improve scientific research and education, according to the company’s website.
Content available to UCR includes the journals, Science Core modules, Science Education Modules, and the Lab Manual.
“This provides the UCR campus with a tremendous amount of engaging and well-presented video content in subjects such as chemistry, the biological sciences, medicine, engineering, earth science, physics, psychology, and environmental sciences,” said Michele Potter, Collection Strategist for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
Filmed at the world’s top scientific institutions, JoVE videos bring to life cutting-edge experiments, enable replication of new research methods and technologies, and empower effective pedagogy for science concepts and laboratory methods. They also support quick in-depth comprehension of complex STEM subjects to increase student engagement and learning outcomes, and support innovative teaching initiatives such as blended learning and flipped classroom.
JoVE was co-founded by a stem cell lab researcher at Princeton University, Moshe Pritsker, shortly after finishing his Ph.D., transforming 450 years of scientific publishing tradition. A decade later, JoVE remains the first and only peer-reviewed scientific video journal, releasing more than 100 new videos every month.
The UCR Library’s subscription will run through September 2021. For more Information, contact Michele Potter.
