JACS on SciVee

Many of the ACS journals have been experimenting with video abstracts as a way to enhance the communication of the research described in the article. The Journal of the American Chemical Society, ACS Nano, and Nano Letters have been experimenting with SciVee.tv, which offers another model for enhancing articles through video. In the SciVee model, the video is synchronized with the text of the journal article. Authors can describe specific aspects of the article, such as a figure or a table, and you will be directed to that exact location in the article. See the following samples, looking specifically at the "video + document" link, and let us know your thoughts. Our thanks to the authors who contributed the videos to this project.
