*New Resource* - JoVE

The Library has recently purchased a new subscription to JoVE -  Journal of Visualized Experiments.

This fantastic resource is an online video journal which publishes peer-reviewed research in a video format. This allows you to see the experimental techniques in action making the presented research clear and immediately understandable. It also means that experimental techniques can be studied and learnt more quickly by fellow researchers. 

The journal content can be searched for straight from the homepage or you can browse by sections, which includes; Neuroscience, Immunology & Infection and Clinical & Translational Medicine. 

The journal is also indexed by Pubmed Central.
