Video is an increasingly important way for researchers to communicate their results, and BioMed Central is at the forefront of developments in this area. We encourage authors and editors to upload suitable videos to YouTube and contact us so that we can add these videos to the BioMed Central channel. If you want to know when we post new videos, just click the 'Subscribe' link on the channel home page.
In addition to our YouTube channel, we are working with SciVee to ensure the visibility and linking of PubCasts featuring BioMed Central articles....
BioMed Central also offers perhaps the best and most fully integrated support for video content within research articles of any scientific publisher. Thumbnails are displayed for any video files associated with an article, and these videos can be played back within the context of the article.... [PS: Omitting links to four examples.]
We encourage and support authors who wish to publish video-enhanced articles, and to this end we have recently doubled the maximum file size for additional material files to 20 megabytes (using modern video standard such as MP4, this is sufficient for several minutes of high quality video).

The open access movement:
Putting peer-reviewed scientific and scholarly literature
on the internet. Making it available free of charge and
free of most copyright and licensing restrictions.
Removing the barriers to serious research.
