Setting the embargo

Under some circumstances, ioChem-BD users need to restrict the access to some elements published on Browse module.
The most common situation is while publishing a manuscript in a journal and its supporting information needs to be accessed by the reviewers. In that special case, the published dataset has to be private to everyone but visible for a reduced number of users (reviewers).
In this case the users who are publishing to Browse module must activate the checkbox Embargo published elements


With this option activated, published elements will be visible inside its collection.


But will request for validation when trying to access any individual item.


Accessing the embargoed elements

Embargoed collections have its individual item pages restricted. So only granted users will access to:

  • full list of metadata fields,
  • display molecule geometry in a specific viewer (JSmol)
  • view HTML5 resume
  • download calculation related files

Embargoed collections generate an unique URL to review its content. Example of such link: After publishing embargoed content from Create module, this links are displayed to the user so they can be shared.
Users can access this links anytime on Create module by clicking on the black icon next to the project.

This links point to the Edit Collection page

On the edit collection page, users can modify certain aspects of the published elements and also retrieve the Embargo link

This link won't appear if the collection doesn't have embargoed elements

Lifting the embargo

Once the content has been validated/reviewed, users can lift the embargo on the same Edit collection page

Clicking this button will lift the embargo on the collection

When the embargo is lifted, the embargo section on Edit collection page won't appear and review links will cease to work.
