Q. What is a journal embargo?



Sometimes our subscription to a journal does not allow full text access to the most recent content for a specific length of time (normally the most recent 6, 12 or 18 months).  This time period is called an embargo.

TIP: There may be better access through another database.To see all UCC library access for a particular journal, search for the journal under the Journals tab on the library home page.

It will show you all our access to that journal.  See if there is access without an embargo.
