JAMA Psychiatry lifts embargo early on studies of suicide in soldiers after break
A set of studies of suicide among U.S. soldiers appearing in JAMA Psychiatry this week was originally embargoed for 4 p.m Eastern on Wednesday, March 5. But at 1:31 p.m. Eastern yesterday, March 3, Harvard Med’s press office sent their release around again, this time topped with:
Due to an embargo break, the embargo has officially lifted. Papers are now available on the JAMA Psychiatry website.
The Harvard message came about 20 minutes after JAMA Psychiatry had sent out a message saying the papers were available on their site. That made me wonder whether this was a break, or a case of inadvertent posting.
JAMA tells Embargo Watch:
It was a break. We are looking into it.
