JoVE to publish videos in Wiley partnership

The Journal of Visualized Experiments has inked a deal with Wiley-Blackwell journal Current Protocols. From the Blackwell press release on February 20:
Current Protocols will use its large database to identify research labs with the most advanced state-of-the art experimental approaches for filming and video publication produced by JoVE. During the first year of the collaborative work, the two companies plan to produce and publish 200 experimental videos online.
On February 22, Alla Katsnelson posted on a Scientist blog that
Moshe Pritsker, CEO of JoVE, told The Scientist this week that he had also signed similar deals with Annual Reviews and Springer Protocols.
Attila Chordash blogs on February 26 that the videos will be apparently OA (the partner journals are not).
