JoVE Unlimited

The library now offers access to JoVE Unlimited, which includes more than 13,000 instructional videos for research and education. Einstein previously had medical and basic science resources from JoVE, but this updated subscription makes available videos for a wider range of disciplines, from clinical skills to chemistry, environmental science to engineering.  

The topics cover a wide variety of research methods, scientific concepts, and clinical competencies, ranging from basic to advanced. The videos offer a combination of animation and live expert demonstration and make it easy to see details that can be difficult to grasp based on text alone. For further accessibility, translations and subtitles are available in more than ten languages. You can integrate JoVE with learning management systems and online platforms like Zoom to facilitate use in classes and trainings. The platform is available 24-7 and over 1,200 new videos are added every year.

Now available: Journal Citation Reports 2022

The 2022 update to Journal Citation Reports has recently been released. COVID-19 research continues to drive increased citation impact.

Journal Citation Reports (JCR) lets users evaluate and compare journals using key metric indicators such as impact factor, immediacy index, and cited half-life to over 7,500 scholarly and technical journals from more than 3,300 publishers. They show the most frequently cited journals in a field, highest impact journals in a field, and the largest journals in a field. JCR covers virtually all areas of science, technology, and social sciences. Includes Impact Factors and EigenFactor Metrics.

Publication tool: PubsHub

Wondering where to publish? Trying to maximize your research presence? Journal-level metrics are one way of quantifying a journal’s impact. While they can give a sense of which journals are popular or respected within a specific field, they are not generalizable across disciplines.

PubsHub includes Impact Factors and Eigenfactors as well as information to help decide where to publish. It features:

  • Rejection rate
  • Time to acceptance 
  • Time to publication
  • Instructions for Authors

Search journals by keyword, title, ISSN, and E-ISSN. Advanced search filters include impact factor tier, time frames, circulation, publisher, and language.
