Neurology breaks its own embargo — again

leave a comment »

The journal Neurology lifted the embargo on their January issue early this week after their publisher posted the issue ahead of schedule. An email from Wednesday:

Dear Reporters,

We would like to inform you that the embargo on the following article featured in the press release below has been lifted as our publisher has posted the article online to Neurology’s website at www.neurology.org.   Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience.

Here was the top of the original release, sent out on Tuesday:

News from the January 3, 2012, NEUROLOGY® Print Publication

EMBARGOED FOR RELEASE UNTIL 4 P.M. ET, MONDAY, JANUARY 2, 2012

New Clues as to Why Some Older People May Be Losing Their Memory

Neurology did the right thing here, of course, just as they did in February when they broke their own embargo on their March issue.  Their press office tells me they’re looking into why it happened again, and regret the error.
