In July we announced that we were running a small scale experiment in collaboration with Research Square offering audio-visual summaries of research papers to a small group of authors. The purpose of this trial is to understand whether this is a useful service for authors and the wider research community. You can find out more about this initiative here.
We now have 20 audio-visual summaries available. Below are two examples:
View all of the audio-visual summaries here.
What do you think of these summaries? Is this a service you find helpful as a reader, and would value as an author? How can we make these as useful and informative as possible? We’ll report back on our findings at the end of the experiment.
