Speedy news: Embargo on Ivy Leaguers and ADHD drugs study lifted early after New Republic breaks it
That news is out early — with some extra speed, you might say — thanks to an embargo break by The New Republic. From an American Academy of Pediatrics note to media sent a little while ago:
Due to an embargo break, the embargo is lifted immediately on the news release, “Many Ivy League students don’t view ADHD medication misuse as cheating,” highlighting an abstract to be presented May 3 at the Pediatric Academic Societies annual meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The news release on EurekAlert! is available at http://www.eurekalert.org/emb_releases/2014-05/aaop-mil042514.php.
Other news releases for the Pediatric Academic Societies meeting retain their original embargoes.
Here’s what’s running where The New Republic story was:
Ivy Leaguers Twice as Likely as Other Students to Use Drugs as Study Aids
This story about a new study about prescription drug abuse presented at the Pediatrics Academics Societies (PAS) was accidentally published before the embargo was lifted. We will re-publish the story on May 3.
