Video Abstracts: Do the metrics stack up?
Poster sessions are particularly prominent at academic conferences. Posters are usually one frame of a powerpoint (or similar) presentation and are represented at full resolution to make them zoomable.
Video abstracts offer a novel means to present study results that can both complement and enrich the full published article. Presenting results through a different medium could address the learning style preferences of a wider group.
In this exploratory analysis, we aimed to compare video abstract views with other publication metrics in order to understand better the role that video abstracts play in disseminating research findings.
