Swedish people are quick to adopt JoVE, a video journal for biomedical sciences

JoVE, the latest innovation in academic publishing, is the first and only peer reviewed video journal indexed in PubMed and MEDLINE. Watching experimental procedures, as opposed to simply reading the text, enables researchers to learn and teach new technologies faster and more effectively. This increases productivity in biological sciences and education at academic institutions.

Dr. Jens Sundstrom, an Associate Professor at Uppsala University, published an open access article in JoVE in 2009, about an experimental methodology used in plant biology research. He now uses the video to teach the technique to his graduate students.

"In the video we aimed to show certain steps which is difficult to do just with reading, and it is a bit of a time-saver for me, because I don't have to show them," said Dr. Sundstrom. "I think it is goo
