Keeping an eye on how scientific information embargoes affect news coverage

German news outlet breaks embargo on UNESCO Science Report

leave a comment »

Email from UNESCO’s press office earlier this afternoon:

The embargo on the UNESCO Science Report has been broken in Germany today. Under these circumstances, UNESCO has decided to lift the embargo generally as of now.

Here’s the report site, although none of the links are live, and a report from AFP that’s time-stamped long after the embargo lift email went out. I assume the embargo wasn’t supposed to lift until tomorrow, which is apparently World Science Day for Peace and Development.

That’s really all I know. UNESCO hasn’t returned an email asking for details. A little crowdsourcing, please?

Hat tip to Amos Zeeberg.
