Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE)

JoVE is the world’s first ever peer-reviewed video journal that publishes videos of scientific experiments from laboratories around the globe. JoVE allows scientists, educators, and students to visually experience the intricate details of cutting-edge experiments that in-text articles cannot provide. While the JoVE Video Journal is focused on more advanced and cutting-edge experiments, JoVE Science Education covers the basic and fundamental techniques and methods across seven disciplines that students will need to know as they progress further into their education and careers.
