Embargo
 
Due to publisher's restriction on a specific journal, our clients may  not have  access to the full text of recent issues. This embargo is also called a holding period or a moving wall. The publisher determines the holding period of this embargo. It could be any period of time - normally between two weeks and two years.
 
Example: 

Journal of Adhesion Science and Technology 

Academic Search Premier  1999 to present  (Embargo: 6 months) 

This indicates that we have access to this title from 1999 to exactly 6 months before present date. In other words: it  is a temporary delay. Issues of this journal published more than six months ago (but not before 1999) will be available to our users.

Please note that only a very small percentage of all our titles come with an embargo. Most of the titles are not restricted.

  ISSN
   
  The ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) is unique 8- digit number assigned to a periodical. It consists of 2 sets of four digits, separated by a hyphen, i.e. 0368-2040 or 0362-541X.

A periodical could have two different  ISSN numbers: one for the print version and another  for online.

ISSN for Serials must not  be confused with  ISBN assigned to books(13 digits).
 
It is always best to search for a journal using the full title. The ISSN is a handy second option if you are in doubt about the exact title. It is possible to search our  A-Z list for an ISSN.
