Latest Thinking is an open-access video journal that provides summaries of research findings from several branches of academics, including biology, physics, chemistry, life sciences, physical sciences, and more.
The goal of Latest Thinking is to increase the impact of the author’s research and promote transparency of the scientific process.
Each video averages around 10 minutes and contains five parts: research question, methods, findings, relevance, and outlook. The videos are based on original research published in another scholarly publication, sometimes a publication with large subscription fees.
In the videos of the journal, authors make their research more accessible by explaining their work in language that is easier to understand. Some videos include animations and illustrations that help demystify abstract concepts and unfamiliar terminology.
The following are online open textbooks that you can access for free to supplement the textbooks in your courses. To learn more about open textbooks visit the Open Educational Resources guide.
The intention of “atoms-first” involves a few basic principles: first, it introduces atomic and molecular structure much earlier than the traditional approach, and it threads these themes through subsequent chapters.
