Recently, an increasing number of publishers are including video abstracts of journal articles to promote interest in reading the full text of articles and to enhance an article's impact.
The AUB University Libraries are happy to announce a new research guide providing researchers with tips and tools for creating video abstracts.
The guide walks researchers through the process of preparing a video abstract, and lists tools and equipment that would make the video impactful and professional.
Researchers can access the guide via the University Libraries webpage: https://aub.edu.lb.libguides.com/VideoResearchAbstract
Video abstracts allow researchers to visually 1) demonstrate experiments physically, 2) illustrate complex theoretical phenomena through visual aids, or 3) introduce viewers to the equipment and tools used in the research.
By adding a visual component to articles by means of a short (1 to 5-minutes) video abstract, researchers can sum up what has been accomplished in an article and can highlight its importance for the field of research and the world.
If you need more information about the guide, or if you have any suggestions, please contact Ms. Fatmeh Charafeddine, Associate University Librarian for Research and Academic Collaboration Services (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, Ext. 2621).
