Embargo policy
Frontiers provides embargoed press releases on selected articles, as well as the provisionary full PDF of accepted articles, for the sole purpose of preparing news stories, reports or other coverage on the article for release at the time of the article’s publication. Sign up for press releases

We trust that you will respect the embargo and not publish, broadcast, post online or otherwise make the contents of press materials public until the featured research article is published in full. 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 comment for news stories, reports or other coverage. Press officers at the authors’ institution(s) may also share embargoed materials with their media contacts. 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 institutional press offices can arrange their own press release and set the article publication time and date (i.e., embargo) with our production office. Embargo an article
