Contribute to the ABS YouTube Channel

Are you interested in contributing video content to our ABS YouTube channel? We would love to hear from you! To submit, please complete the information form below and upload your video for consideration. Your submission will be reviewed by the ABS Social Media Team. If it fits the criteria for our channel, we will work with you to post it. Please note that a release form must also be submitted.

You may also propose a video idea (before production) for review. We are particularly interested in highlighting ABS members from groups typically underrepresented in our field. We are NOT currently looking for recorded seminars or standard research talks. Here are some categories of videos we are especially interested in:

  • Succinct Tool/Method Demonstrations: clearly explain a method that's useful in animal behavior science, such as: "Network Analysis in R" or "Measuring UV Reflectance with a UV Spectrometer" [target audience: other researchers, students]
  • Short "Science Communication" Features: high-quality videos that feature animal behavior scientists in the field, in the lab, discussing their work, etc. [target audience: undergraduate classrooms, outreach initiatives]
  • Annotated Videos of Animals Behaving: examples of animals behaving in the field or in the lab, with an ethogram and explanations of the behaviors, how to quantify behavior [target audience: other researchers, students, undergraduate classrooms]
  • Concise Review/Synthesis Presentations: an overview of a specific sub-area within animal behavior, reviewing the literature in a clear and compelling way [target audience: other researchers, undergraduate classrooms]
Videos should be kept to approximately 1 hour (1.5 hr max) in length. For longer content, videos can be broken down and labeled as Part 1, Part 2, etc. with each section kept to approximately one hour.
