Embargo functionality allows users to set a future release date for a ReDBox record. A delayed release may be required by researchers due to factors such as article publication dates.

Functional requirements

  • Data entry:
    • Indicate if embargo is needed and set the release date 
    • Capture reason for embargo
  • Reporting:
    • Alert staff that an embargo is about to be lifted
    • Report listing all embargoed items and the release date
Further discussions need to determine how an embargo affects the underlying data and its release.
