Embargo policy
Frontiers provide embargoed news releases for select research, alongside a full version of the accepted article in PDF format. This is solely for the purpose of preparing news stories, reports or other coverage. Publication should strictly adhere to the embargo specified in the news release. The embargo date and time are clearly marked on all embargoed materials. You may discuss embargoed materials with the article author(s) for the purpose of seeking further information or comment. Media communications teams at authors’ institution(s) may also share embargoed materials. If you share embargoed materials, the embargo date and time must be clearly marked. Authors of an accepted article should only give interviews on the study if the journalist or blogger agrees to abide by this embargo policy. Authors and institutions can manage or discuss media communications with Frontiers, including embargos, using the contact information above.
