SciVee PubCasts Enliven Journal Content and Drive Higher Online Views
San Diego, CA—SciVee, the leading rich media platform solutions provider to the scientific, technical and medical market, announced today that The American Society for Nutrition has signed a subscription agreement to deploy SciVee for ASN’s two journals, The Journal of Nutrition, and The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. This agreement follows a successful trial which demonstrated that SciVee solutions make scientific and scholarly content much more engaging and thereby drive higher online traffic and reader interest.
“SciVee provides an engaging multimedia experience that drives online views, broadens reader interest, and enhances our online presence” said Karen King, ASN Director of Publications. “Equally importantly, SciVee is quite intuitive to use and cost-effective so its services can be used by many authors and our staff.”
ASN is using SciVee primarily to produce a PubCast, which is a synchronized video abstract that enables a reader to see the author discuss highlighted sections of a journal article in a full multimedia presentation online. It provides a much more dynamic way to absorb and retain knowledge than a text-only abstract. It promotes greater interest in the author’s work and increases its impact through broad distribution on the Internet.
“We are honored to have ASN, a well-known innovator in STM publishing, choose SciVee for its rich media platform. Along with our other customers, ASN is leading the way in providing a much needed rich media component in STM content that its readers expect and demand in a Web 2.0 world,” said Ken Liu, SciVee’s Vice President of Business Development.
