The New Scientist Technology Blog report that a new Web site, the Journal of Visualized Experiments, allows scientists to upload videos of experimental practice. The site is designed to help overcome the difficulties encountered learning scientific practice which can often involve a lot of tacit knowledge. Although it is already possible to upload such videos to YouTube and Google these sites offer none of the advantages of specialised, peer-reviewed filters on content.
