American Journal of Preventive Medicine lifts embargo early after technical issue leads to coverage
PLEASE NOTE: EMBARGO NOW LIFTED — FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
UNDER EMBARGO UNTIL AUGUST 30, 2011, 12:01 AM ET
A Lifetime of Physical Activity Yields Measurable Benefits As We Age
According to New Study in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine
The AJPM’s publisher, Elsevier, tells Embargo Watch:
Basically there was a technical problem and the post was submitted before the embargo date was entered. It was recognized quickly, but not before it had been covered – a matter of minutes. Since the site that covered it didn’t see the embargo at first, we see no need to sanction anyone.
Embargo Watch readers may recall that the AJPM was the source of the Groundhog Day embargo, which lifted 26 different times because it was timed to local time, rather than a set time zone.
