SOCIETY JOURNAL TO PUBLISH VIDEOS

Do you use advanced imaging techniques to produce videos or time-lapse photography? Do you study real-time intracellular trafficking or produce 3D reconstruction of molecules? Journal of Molecular Endocrinology now offers the ability to publish inline videos that play in the online version of your published article, adding an extra dimension to readers’ engagement with your work. We are offering all accepted authors who include video as part of their submission a free open access publication (usually £2,700) when they submit their work  before 31 December 2016. Visit www.try-jme.org to submit your work.
