Q. What does Full Text Delay mean?


Sometimes while using Full Text Finder you may see a journal title with a range of dates and then a note with Full Text Delay and a time frame (ex: 2 months, 1 year, etc.) behind it. This means that the publisher of that journal has restricted access for that current materials and won't release the full text until after that time frame. In this case, we can try to interlibrary loan the current article from a library that carries a current subscription. Sometimes a full text delay is also referred to as an "embargo".
