It is often difficult to communicate scientific findings to both the scientific community and the general public. This is because journals are numerous, expensive, and often difficult to digest. In an attempt to remedy this problem SciVee has launched.

From the FAQ, "SciVee is about the free and widespread dissemination and comprehension of science." It's a video service, kind of like youtube, but smart. SciVee has the support of PloS, an online, free, peer-reviewed, journal. It works by having scientists submit their paper and accompany it with a short video presentation explaining what their paper is addressing. It's neat. It's a step towards getting science out to the masses.

Right now there seems to be a shortage of content but check it out anyways.
