What is a science animation?Science animation refers to the use of animation to portray, communicate, and explain scientific concepts. They are often used for the purposes of academic teaching, awareness campaigning, as well as for entertainment. We provide two science animation services: 1. Video abstracts Video abstracts are short animated summaries about the main findings of an academic paper. They are most effective at promoting a paper's public visibility through media releases and on social media. We offer video abstracts in three artistic formats: Whiteboard 2D motion graphic Hybrid whiteboard/motion graphic 2. Custom explainer videos The scope of an explainer video can branch out infinitely. Whether you need a video to explain your grant application ideas, or simply want an animation to introduce your research team, we'll be able to craft a customised video to suit your needs. Custom explainer videos are offered in the same artistic formats as with video abstracts. However, higher levels of motion and artistic detail can also be achieved in our custom explainer video service. You can learn more about our product tiers here. Examples of animations we have created include: Government project explainers Recruitment campaigns in science and health Animations for research team websites Protocols in a scientific industry Promotional explainers for books with a research context Have an idea for your custom animation? Contact us to find out how we can bring your story to life.
What is the process?Your research is well on its way to more citations, a healthy boost in metrics, and maybe even onto newsstands around the world. And, believe it or not, it’s as easy as 1 - 2 - 3. Move 1 - Questionnaire Effortlessly tell us the story of your paper with our guided questionnaire. This speeds up the process and ensures that you remain in control over the way your research is portrayed. Move 2 - Concept & storyboard Our team breathes life into your research by writing a script and sketching out your video or graphical abstract for your approval. Move 3 - Illustration/video production Sit back and relax as we work our magic in turning your complex science into a beautiful visual that you’ll be proud to share with the world. Customers that choose our custom animations will start with a strategy session instead of the questionnaire.
What license covers the graphical and video abstracts?Don’t worry, you’re covered. All of our products are licensed under Creative Commons – Attribution, No Derivatives by default. This means you and anyone else are free to share, copy, and redistribute your video or graphical abstract in any medium, as long as the following conditions are met: 1. Attribution is given to the paper (title, authors, journal, year, DOI), and to www.animateyour.science 2. The product is not modified in any way If you need a whitelabeled product that's ok too, a small fee applies in that case.
What payment methods do you take?We accept payment by Credit Card, PayPal and Bank transfers. While we do accept purchase orders, we highly encourage instant payment (usingthe options above) for a more streamlined process and much faster turnaround time.
Will you keep my work confidential?Absolutely! Your project remains top secret until the embargo is lifted. And you choose the date and time you want to release your animated research to the world.
Who designs the artwork and animates the video?While the concepts are created by a science communicator, the illustrations and animations are created by our professional designers. You can see our beautiful faces on the about page.
Do you promote the video/graphical abstracts?We do! We offer social sharing through our media channels so that your research is positioned to make a splash from the start. For no extra cost!
Can I show graphs in the visual abstract?Yes and no. Here’s the thing — we advise against the use of graphs as they can be a turnoff to the layperson. With that said, if your target audience is exclusively scientists, we can include one simple graph in your animation.
