JoVE – Journal of Visualized Experiments [New UT online scientific video journal]


The University of Toledo Libraries now subscribes to the JoVE as of September 15, 2015 to the JoVE Science Education pages . These collections are dedicated to teaching laboratory fundamentals through simple, easy to understand video demonstrations. University Libraries currently subscribe to 9 out of the 11 collections:  General Laboratory Techniques; Basic Methods in Cellular and Molecular Biology; Essentials of Biology 1: Yeast, Drosophila and C. elegans; Essentials of Biology 2: Mouse, Zebrafish, and Chick; Essentials of Neuroscience; Essentials of Developmental Biology; Essentials of Behavioral Science; Essentials of Genetics; and Essentials of Cell Biology.

At this time the UT libraries do not subscribe to the (video) journals at JoVE. However, JoVE journal articles older than two years (and some later ones)  may be accessed through PubMed Central (a subset of PubMed which provides access to articles that are free to all).


[From Jolene's email 9/15, paraphrased]

Application videos from JoVE articles are listed below each education video. UT affiliates will have access to application videos through the Science pages. However UT affiliates at this time will not have access to JoVE articles not referenced in the JoVE Science Education pages.

Below is a link to a Science Education video. After clicking it, scroll down you will see the list of 5 or so application videos. They are from the different JoVE journal sections. These application videos will be accessible regardless of whether you have access to those journal sections or not.




[From Jolene–> When we promote this product, we should point out these application videos.

[After much back and forth between me, them, purchasing, etc., the JoVE product is now accessible.  Please note that we are subscribing to 9 out of 11 of the collections in the Science Education Database section only – not any of the other 10 (!) JoVE journal parts. The videos in the Science Education collections were the ones most often recommended by our users.]

Collaborators include experts in data science, artificial intelligence and library science. They scour the internet, finding, understanding, categorizing and organizing the medical web so that students and professionals can quickly and easily find the resources they need to take the next steps in their learning journeys.

Initial browsing includes options for finding trending, latest, and best of sites. One may also browse by topics. Members may link to Web pages, start a discussion or upload a file. Alerts are automatically created based on one’s activity and profile.

Founded in 2008 and supported by UK government funding, Meducation is 100% free.
However registration is required.

Complete list of all the Apple ResearchKit medical study apps

From the 13 November 2015 iMedicalApps article by Satish Misra, MD

Since Apple launched ResearchKit earlier this year, we’ve seen a number of medical research studies from nonprofits and academic medical centers across the country. And there’s clearly a lot more interest out there among clinicians and healthcare professionals.

One way clinical researchers can help understand how ResearchKit may improve their own work is to quickly survey how others are using this platform. To that end, we’ve put together a guide to all of the ResearchKit studies of which we’re aware. We’ll keep this list updated with new studies as they launch as well as any findings that are published from these studies.
