Innovation in HSS Research Through OA Videos

 

LATEST THINKING (https://lt.org) envisions to broaden the impact of scholarly works. Their independent Open Access Video Journal provides video summaries of research findings covering all academic fields. All original videos are based on peer-reviewed academic publications, (curated by a Selection Committee), and brought to you by the authors in person via a video player which navigates users through the scholar‘s flow of ideas. To date, more than 200 videos have been published. Your funding will help to ensure that more high-quality, up-to- date videos on the latest research are freely available to users all around the world. Participating institutions and researchers will benefit from acquiring video-making knowledge and supporting broader dissemination of scholarly findings. .
