pnas 14For the fifth time this year, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) had to lift the embargo early on a study because of an embargo break.

From the PNAS news office this morning at 8 a.m. Eastern, days ahead of the Monday afternoon scheduled embargo time:

Due to an embargo break, PNAS is lifting the embargo early on the collection of papers from the Special Feature titled “The Modern View of Domestication.” All other articles are under the scheduled embargo:

  • Archaeological and genetic evidence expands views of domestication

A collection of papers from the Special Feature, “The Modern View of Domestication,” explores the history of domestication through a combination of both archaeological and genetic evidence, and includes studies of both domesticated animals such as chickens and crops such as chili peppers.

PNAS tells us a story ran early — yesterday — in the Sacramento Bee.

The break follows one by Quartz last week, one by Gaia News and Science Codex in February, another by Tribuna Salamanca and the South China Morning Post in January, and one by the Australian in the first week of the year.
