Some journals are embargoed, which means the full text of the most recent articles are not available online. The embargo is the length of time in which full text articles are not available online. For example, if a journal is embargoed for one year, that means the full text of that journal will not be available online until one year after publication.

You can see if a journal is embargoed by using Journal and Book Locator

Screenshot of Journal and Book Locator search result showing the Journal of educational change is available from 03/01/2000 to 1 year ago.

Instructions for using Journal and Book Locator can be located in our Journal and Book Locator Library Guide. The length of time of an embargo is set by the publisher and is typically 3 or 12 months.
