Workshop: Creating a Video Abstract: Digital Storytelling for Researchers

A video abstract serves to visually communicate, to a target audience, the key elements of a scholarly paper or research article. A small but growing number of publishers encourage authors to share their work through this medium. A study (Spicer, 2014) has shown that papers accompanied by video abstracts were more often read than others. Another study (Zong et al, 2019) found that video abstracts have a positive impact on citation count. This workshop aims to guide researchers through the process of creating a video abstract for the purpose of tell stories about their work.
