Abstract Tube is similar to 'YouTube',
but focused at academic videos only.
"A video abstract is the motion picture equivalent of a written abstract. Usually not longer than 5 minutes, video abstracts help the viewer to get a quick overview on a scholarly paper, research article, thesis or review: and to quickly ascertain the purpose and results of a given research."
Abstract Tube Inc. is primarily a software and services company which works as an online platform to upload and publish academic videos. What makes us unique is that there are no other dedicated video portals (that we know of) in the market which offer video hosting for academic abstracts such as journal articles, conference papers, thesis and dissertation abstracts. We are also unaware of any project-summary-as-abstract video services (or academic work publications that offer short and concise video formats). Therefore, a dedicated video portal for this purpose was much needed, and thus Abstract Tube Inc. was born. Studies have found that scientific video abstracts engage people more. Scientific journals are encouraging authors to provide video abstracts.
Abstract Tube Inc. is going to be the next generation search engine for abstract videos from journal articles, conference papers, theses and dissertations. We are planning to collaborate with journal publishers, universities and even scientific conference events. Soon, we will start offering services for video production, script writing, background music creation and others. We have not identified any direct competitors yet in terms of a dedicated video portal for academic abstract videos. But there are some service providers who help with abstract video creation (e.g. American Journal Experts, ChemistryViews, Research Square - Wiley).
Funds from this crowdfunding campaign will be used for marketing and branding to raise awareness among students and researchers and will also go toward web and mobile technology development of the platform. We are currently in the testing stage and will begin mobile and web development after finalizing our funding round. We are hoping for a late 2018 web and mobile application launch.
A Note from the Founder
"A short 3-5 minute abstract video gives one the opportunity to summarize and illustrate the key findings in the thesis, journal article, conference paper or any research project. Academic video content is gaining popularity among the students and scholars, but there is no specific video hosting site for all scholarly publications. If there were to be a particular video hosting site where a proper depository could be made, it would become a great place to search for recent video abstracts in any. particular subject. From the citation perspective, most online video abstract citations are not done correctly. Therefore, a service like Abstract Tube is necessary to resolve these issues. As the scholarly community embraces video creation for their publications, Abstract Tube can become the new scholarly video archive site. "
