More on Science 2.0: Cell Press

I've just learned that Cell Press, the publisher of journals like Cell, Neuron, Developmental Cell, the Trends Series and the great (IMHO) Molecular Cell, has recently announced the launching of a Cell Press channel on YouTube where you can
"Watch videos of scientific discoveries published in Cell Press journals, experience the observations behind the papers and explore our showcase of exciting biology—from the molecule to the population"

Although I haven't checked the quality (scientific quality that is, in terms of the depth of the analyses) of the videos or the target group they are supposed to be made for, I think this is a great idea, as I have argued before that web videos are great tools for advertising [Commecials in life science research: Roche] be it new technologies or, as in the case of the Cell press channel, recent papers.

So check it out!
