Embargo Watch

Keeping an eye on how scientific information embargoes affect news coverage

So when does that journal’s embargo lift, anyway? A site that will tell you

When I started Embargo Watch, one of the things I thought about doing was compiling a list of every journal’s embargo times and leaving it on the blog somehow. But every time I started to do it, I’d throw my hands up in the air because so many journals were posting advance online material every few days that it seemed hopeless.

Lucky for me, and for Embargo Watch readers, Robin Lloyd is more persistent than I am. With help from a number of people, including minor additions from me, Lloyd has produced the Embargoes Master List.

Every science and medical reporter should bookmark this. On it, you’ll find embargoes from embargoes from PNAS to the Proceedings of the Royal Society A. Lloyd will also continue updating the list, so go ahead and send her more suggestions.

And, although it’s embargoed until midnight local time wherever you are: Happy New Year!
