Featured Database: JoVEs

You can use databases to easily find organized collections of articles, journals, news, streaming videos, primary sources, data, and more!

Here’s one of our most unique databases:


What’s in it?

JoVE is both a journal, the Journal of Visualized Experiments, and a database, JoVE Science Education Database, of filmed peer-reviewed experiments, published in video format to make visible the subtle, intricate techniques involved in research.

Why should you use it?

You can use JoVE to find ideas for experiments, confirm best practice in lab protocols, or get a head start on your lab sessions by reviewing similar experiments beforehand.

Who should use it?

JoVE is useful to anyone studying the sciences. It contains experiments in biology, neuroscience, medicine, bioengineering, engineering, genetics, oncology, immunology, infectious disease, chemistry, behavior, developmental biology, biochemistry, and psychology.  

Why use a database?

When you use a specific database, rather than a search engine or discovery tool, you often can find more relevant sources. For example, subject databases include sources about that subject only, rather than a general search engine or discovery tool that includes information about everything. This way you don’t have to wade through thousands of irrelevant results!
