I work at UTSW Medical Center in the Radiology department as a medical illustrator. Part of my duties include creating 2d illustrations to support the faculty/residents/researchers in the department.
Many online journals now support animations in the form of movie files. I want to figure out if it’s possible to embed models into online articles. I believe I could have the authors include hyperlinks in their manuscripts, but it would definitely be more impactful if it appeared in the body of the article.
I am not sure how to bring this up to the various publishers, ie, Elsevier, Nature, Lancet, etc. I imagine it would be up to them to include the code on their end.
Has anyone had this conversation with publishers or can you tell me if its possible to embed models into a Word .doc?
