pnas juneThe top of an email from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences to reporters this morning:

Due to an embargo break, PNAS is lifting the embargo early on the following paper. All other articles are under the scheduled embargo:

  • eReading before bed

Use of light-emitting eReaders and other electronic light before bedtime may shift circadian rhythms and negatively affect sleep and alertness, according to a study.

The journal tells us it was a Pacific Standard story that broke the embargo. The URL currently goes to the magazine’s homepage.

This is the 11th embargo break for the journal this year.
