SciVee teams up with American Society for Nutrition

SciVee, which provides the scientific community with resources that make science visible through video and social media, has signed an agreement with the American Society for Nutrition for its publications The Journal of Nutrition and The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

“SciVee provides an engaging multimedia experience that drives online views, broadens reader interest, and enhances our online presence,” Karen King, ASN director of publications, said in a news release. “Equally importantly, SciVee is quite intuitive to use and cost-effective, so its services can be used by many authors and our staff.”

ASN is using SciVee primarily to produce a PubCast, which is a synchronized video abstract that enables a reader to see the author discuss highlighted sections of a journal article in a full multimedia presentation online.

Phil Bourne of UCSD is one of the founders of the company.
