What's a video abstract?

A video abstract is an audiovisual synopsis of your research that exists alongside your written article. In a video abstract you have flexibility in how you describe your work, such as showing experimental methods or explaining your motivations for the research. Some journals provide a service to help authors create a video or a narrated slide show of their work.

Video abstracts can increase your online visibility, leading more people to your written article as well as inform a broader audience about their research topic. Share your video abstract on social media or on your research blog.
