Media embargoes

All manuscripts are considered to be under a media embargo from the time of submission until online publication of the article or rejection of the manuscript. Authors may discuss their articles or findings with the media before publication but must adhere to the media embargo. It is advisable to inform the Editorial Office of any pending media reports so that they can provide assistance, especially with regard to the publication date. The key findings of an article should not be released in the press until online publication of the article, and all media reports emanating from a published article should include the full source of a link to the article online.

Authors will be informed of any media releases issued by the Journal or other marketing efforts that relate to their work. The details of the corresponding author may be provided to the media; authors should inform the Editorial Office in advance if an author, other than the corresponding author, should be contacted for media-related enquiries.
