TL;DR: How the transition from the written paper to the audiovisual form is evolving is reviewed, which will include not only these types of videos but also the online journals that make the publication of such videos possible, thereby facilitating a study of how these online platforms allow new ways of communicating research outputs in academic contexts.
Abstract: This paper aims to address the video as a new scholarly communication form, alternative to the traditional written paper. Although the use of video could be a worthwhile option for any field of study in which videographic practice would facilitate the communication of the research findings and thus enhance our understanding of them, this practice seems especially useful when the object of study itself is the audiovisual language. For this reason and because the number of media scholars communicating their research outputs in videos has increased in recent years to the extent of becoming a new trend, I focus on the exploration of this practice in this discipline. However, could the video meet academic standards, and thus be considered as a new scholarly form? If the answer is affirmative, what exactly makes a video academic? Offering some answers to these questions is the main purpose of this article, which reviews how the transition from the written paper to the audiovisual form is evolving. This exploration will include not only these types of videos but also the online journals that make the publication of such videos possible, thereby facilitating a study of how these online platforms allow new ways of communicating research outputs in academic contexts.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors review and describe a spectrum of procedures that incorporate ineffable content such as data, and the extension of the circle of scientific communication, as well as the reformulation of the relationship of power between subject researcher-object investigated.
Abstract: EnglishIn the last decade of the twentieth century, various experimental currents in pedagogical methods, clinical psychology and social anthropology, mainly, find reciprocal resonances linked by a critical perspective. This silent revolution in the way of building science is emerging through various turns (performative, narrative...). Certain social research explores art as a method, while certain art explores social intervention. The effervescence of this exploratory context ends up overflowing the traditional classification dualism that divided scientific methods into quantitative and qualitative. Although a consensus classification has not yet stabilized, the first two decades of the 21st century have populated the social science research landscape of creative methodological designs, beyond mixed methods, that use art as a phase or link in the scientific protocol. the main contributions of the practices studied here to the scientific culture. The main contribution of the work is the review and description of this spectrum of procedures that incorporate ineffable content such as data, and the extension of the circle of scientific communication, as well as the reformulation of the relationship of power between subject researcher-object investigated. Moreover, it is intended to contribute to the systematization of this conceptual field into three categories: art as a technique to stimulate data production, art as data and art as a communication and dissemination code MultipleEn la ultima decada del siglo XX, diversas corrientes experimentales en metodos pedagogicos, de psicologia clinica y antropologia social, principalmente, van encontrando resonancias reciprocas unidas por una perspectiva critica. Esta revolucion silenciosa en la forma de construccion de la ciencia se va urdiendo mediante diversos giros (performativo, narrativo...). Cierta investigacion social explora el arte como metodo, mientras cierto arte explora la intervencion social. La efervescencia de este contexto exploratorio termina desbordando el dualismo de clasificacion tradicional que dividia los metodos cientificos en cuantitativos y cualitativos. Se experimenta con otros paradigmas. Aunque no se haya estabilizado aun una clasificacion consensuada, las dos primeras decadas del siglo XXI han poblado el panorama investigador en ciencias sociales de disenos metodologicos creativos que emplean el arte como fase o eslabon del protocolo cientifico. La principal aportacion del trabajo es la revision y descripcion de ese espectro de procedimientos que incorporan contenidos inefables como datos, amplian el circulo de la comunicacion cientifica y reformulan la relacion de poder sujeto investigador-sujeto investigado, y la sistematizacion de su mapeo en tres categorias: el arte como tecnica de estimulacion de produccion de datos, el arte como dato y el arte como codigo comunicativo y de difusion.
