Dove Medical Press hold the annual Video Abstract Award. The videos with the most views are eligible for selection and voting is performed by our Editors and published authors.

Video abstracts are an addition to papers that we offer our authors. The videos are presented by the author, are of 1-3 minutes duration and give an overview of their paper so readers can get an idea of the content and motivation behind the paper.

The aim is to enable authors to personally explain the importance of their work to the reader. Video abstracts enhance the reader's understanding and appreciation of an article through the accessible presentation of the main results and conclusions reported. To maximize engagement and visibility, authors are encouraged to combine footage of themselves with other relevant material of interest—such as footage of an experiment running or a lab tour.

The English video abstracts are published with the manuscript and also provided to the journal indexing databases (eg, PubMed, MedLine, Embase, Scopus, CAS).

Editorials, Expression of Concern, Corrigenda, Photo Essays and Meeting Reports do not accept video abstracts.
