Columbia University breaks embargo on researchers’ paper
The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) lifted the embargo about three hours early on a paper scheduled to go live yesterday at 3 p.m. Eastern time, after a press release appeared on the website of the university medical center home of some of the researchers, and a story ran on a wire service.
From a PNAS email sent to reporters yesterday:
PNAS is lifting the embargo on the following manuscript. All other manuscripts are under the scheduled embargo of Monday, June 6, 3 pm US ET.
Article #15-10502: “Characterizing treatment pathways at scale using the OHDSI network,” by George Hripcsak et al.
PNAS tells us:
The following two articles were posted ahead of the embargo. We are investigating the circumstances.
