Circadian embargo clock malfunctions as press release is published ahead of schedule
PNAS lifted the embargo early on a study today following the publication of a university press release on a website some time before the embargo was scheduled to lift.

PNAS is lifting the embargo early on the following paper. All other articles are under the scheduled embargo:

PNAS tells us that this press release from Trinity College Dublin, one of the authors’ institutions, broke the release when it was published about five hours before the embargo time on HealthCanal.
