The Journal of Visualized Experiments

JoVE is a unique collection of peer reviewed video journals. Virginia Tech subscribes to three of them: Behavior, Science Education, and Neuroscience (linked below). 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.
