Request for Video Submissions

Dear members of the echinoderm community:

In response to a request of JoVE, I am organizing a Methods Collection titled “Methods for studying echinoderm embryonic development ".

JoVE is the leading peer-reviewed scientific methods video journal (Impact Factor, 1.184), subscribed by a number of institutions. Upon publication, your accepted video article will be indexed in the major databases, including PubMed, EMBASE, Scopus and Web of Science. JoVE's team takes care of the entire process of filming and producing your video. Due to this nature, a practical processing cost of $1,400 is required for the standard article ($3900 for the open access article). Alternatively, 17% off is also available per six article package (= $1166.67 per article). If multiple labs can team up to submit six articles at a time, this option may work.

This Methods Collection aims to cover both general and specialized techniques to study embryonic development of the sea urchin (or echinoderms) as a model system. This collection will set the standard for reproducibility within the community as well as serve as a great entry point for new researchers to join this community in the future. Each lab’s expertise and techniques in this community would be an invaluable addition to this collection.

Upon completion, this collection will be distributed to a comprehensive list of researchers and educators who are active in the field.Importantly, authors may post your video article on the institution’s or personal website independent of the access type of your article, so the standard access should suffice in most cases. Furthermore, the links to those free videos on individual’s websites can be listed on Echinobase or elsewhere and will be a valuable tool for teaching & outreach activities outside of your lab.

Lastly, upon enough number of methods being collected, JoVE provides a future option to set up Encyclopedia that is based off of existing videos on JoVE. Collectively, this collection will significantly help both community members and outside researchers/reviewers understand the power of sea urchin/echinoderm biology as a model system in the future. 

If you would be willing to contribute to this collection, please feel free to contact me via e-mail for potential topics of your interest. Or, directly submit an Abstract.

Best Regards,

Mamiko Yajima
