What is the Press Embargo Policy?
Like most medical journals, the Journal of Medicine employs an embargo system. Copies are delivered or made available over the Internet to journalists who agree not to publish stories Each issue's content is made available online at 5PM Eastern time in the United States on Tuesday prior to the release.
There are two fundamental reasons for our embargo: it gives the media time to report accurately on complex and important new research findings, and it allows subscribers to read and understand the full reports in the Journal of Medicine before media reports prompt patients to call with questions.
If an article has immediate clinical importance, the Journal of Medicine may designate it for early release and publish it online before its appearance in print.
