Video data are integral to scientific research articles, but they have long been relegated to the "Supporting Information" pages on the PNAS website due to the historical limitations of print media and the constraints of content workflows and platform technology. Those constraints have been overcome with Glencoe Software's Video Injection Service. Video data are converted from any file type into standardized formats for streaming to play-in-place viewers on desktop computers, tablets and phones.

Dana Compton, Publication Director of PNAS, said, "We are pleased to partner with Glencoe Software to offer this new streamlined presentation of video data in PNAS research articles. We strive to make all types of data in our articles as accessible as possible to our readers." Jason Swedlow, President of Glencoe Software, Inc., said, "Video data are intrinsic to modern research reports. Our Video Injection Service places videos in their rightful location within the full text of published articles."
