PNAS breaks its own embargo on insect paper

leave a comment »

pnasAn email from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) to its press list yesterday afternoon:

Due to a production scheduling error, PNAS is lifting the embargo early on the following paper.

Article #13-00759: “Induced Plant Defenses, Host-Pathogen Interactions, and Forest Insect Outbreaks,” by Bret D. Elderd et al.

PNAS tells us:

Our production department accidentally published the paper ahead of the original schedule.

Breaking one’s own embargo has become a tradition in which the PNAS joins the Royal Society, the American Heart Association, Neurology, the Archives of Dermatology, the American Association for Cancer Research, and others.
