MBE embargo policy
Molecular Biology and Evolution’s Press Office periodically sends out news releases regarding upcoming articles of interest. Upon request from a reporter, MBE makes the full text of these articles available in advance of publication with the understanding that the embargo policy will be upheld. Embargo dates and times are stated on all news releases sent by MBE . Reporters should credit MBE as the source of the information in any news reports.
MBE Press Office Contact
If an author's institution is planning on promoting an accepted manuscript in MBE , the author or institution should contact Joseph Caspermeyer, who directs the Press Office as part of MBE’s Editorial Department. To determine embargo dates, coordination of materials and other assistance, please contact: Phone: (480) 258-8972; or Email: MBEpress@gmail.com
Working with author institutions
Because MBE publishes accepted manuscripts as “Advanced Online," usually within days of acceptance, it is important to contact the MBE Press Office to coordinate publicity efforts as soon as possible, preferably during the final revision of the manuscript.
