SciVee round-up

August 28th, 2007 by Kaitlin Thaney

So much has been written about SciVee, the new Web site dubbed “the YouTube for science research papers”, that we’ve decided to take on the round-up post instead of restating the good words of our peers. For those who may not know, the site is a project of the National Science Foundation, the San Diego Super Computing Center, and the Public Library of Science. All video submitted to the site is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license. And scientists are only allowed to upload publications as part of their video submissions that were published in Open Access journals.

The site joins other projects focused on presenting scientific videos and presentations, such as Science Hack, the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE), Bioscreencast, and Video Lectures, among others.
