I have a video from my simulation and would like to add the link to my journal article. However, I do not want to post it on YouTube since I do not want my video next to some random video. Are there websites dedicated solely for this purpose?

  • The journal may usually include your videos, animations through hosting links. Ask the editor/contact at the journal. – dearN Mar 20 '14 at 19:55
  • @drN Thanks. However, I am looking for something like GitHub where I can share my code. – random guest Mar 20 '14 at 20:07

    I don't understand the argument: "However, I do not want to post it on YouTube since I do not want my video next to some random video". Other videos are not science-related... so what? (BTW: video abstract of New Journal of Physics are on YT: youtube.com/user/NewJournalofPhysics). (That said, there may be other arguments against YouTube for scientific content - e.g. data preservation.) – Piotr Migdal Mar 20 '14 at 22:59
  • If you post to YouTube you can set the visibility (public/unlisted/private). If you choose unlisted anyone with the link can see it but YouTube will not list it, which seems to be part of your concern. – earthling Jan 19 '15 at 12:13

Usually the journal will host the videos as supplementary material, but if you want to host it externally, there are options. For example, figshare (see also this blog post).
