Accelerating Scientific Research and Education

JoVE creates the ultimate solutions for advancing research and science education by making and publishing videos of scientific experiments from the top laboratories around the globe.

By allowing scientists, educators and students to see the intricate details of cutting-edge experiments rather than read them in text articles, JoVE increases STEM research productivity and student learning, saving their institutions time and money.

That’s why today more than 1,000 of the world’s top universities, colleges, hospitals and biotech companies depend on JoVE to maximize productivity, efficiency and successful outcomes.

JoVE creates scientific videos for two unique resources: JoVE Video Journal and JoVE Science Education Library.

JoVE publishes the leading peer-reviewed, PubMed-indexed video methods journal. Articles consist of high-quality video demonstrations and detailed text protocols which facilitate scientific reproducibility and productivity. The scope of the journal includes novel techniques, innovative applications of existing techniques, and gold standard protocols in the physical and life sciences. The content and editorial vision of the journal is advanced by JoVE’s Editorial Board and Science Editors. JoVE’s 2018 impact factor is 1.108.

Educators and students use our innovative video collections in the JoVE Science Education Library to better teach and learn key concepts and fundamental techniques at the undergraduate course level. These simple, easy-to-understand video demonstrations cover a wide range of STEM subjects including Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Psychology, Clinical Medicine and Engineering.

Necessity, as they say...


JoVE was born from the same emotion that has led to countless innovations: frustration. Our co-founder and CEO Moshe Pritsker was a young researcher working in a stem cell lab at Princeton. Unable to complete a?crucial experiment from text articles alone and without any local colleagues to show him the intricate steps, he was struck with his “Eureka!” moment: why not complement published experiments with a video showing the steps in vivid detail?

Shortly after finishing his Ph.D., he traded a lab coat for a video camera and JoVE was born, changing 450 years of scientific publishing tradition. Now 10 years later, JoVE remains the first and only peer-reviewed scientific video journal, publishing more than 100 new videos each month.


Improving Research and Education Worldwide

We’re dedicated to expanding our novel approach to include every area of science that can be improved through video. Our goal is to help all scientists improve their research and help every educator better teach STEM students the fundamentals of science.
