GRAPHICS: Embargos y felicidad



Un clásico.
La revista Science.
Desde 1880, la revista líder en información científica.
EEUU.




Embarga sus noticias hasta una fecha, y entonces todos los medios mundiales se dedican a calcar sus contenidos. Una máquina de generar exclusivas.




Aquí lo política de embargo de la revista:

WHAT IS SCIENCE'S EMBARGO POLICY? CAN I PRESENT WORK PENDING AT SCIENCE AT A SCIENTIFIC MEETING?
The most important aspects of Science's embargo policy -- which is designed to ensure broad and accurate coverage of authors' research -- can be briefly summed up as follows:
• No news coverage of your paper can appear anywhere before 2:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time on the Thursday before your paper's publication. This is generally two to three hours before the online version of Science is posted each week. (The print version of Science is published each Friday, except for the last Friday of the calendar year.)
• Scientists are welcome to present the results of their upcoming Science papers to colleagues at professional meetings. If the paper has been accepted for publication In Science, we ask that you inform the AAAS Office of Public Programs (202-326-6440) that you are planning to make such a presentation.
• Comments to press reporters attending your scheduled session at a professional meeting should be limited to clarifying the specifics of your presentation. In such situations, we ask that you do not expand beyond the content of your talk or give copies of the paper, data, overheads, or slides to reporters.
• Scientists with papers pending at Science should not give interviews on the work until the week before publication, and then only if the journalist agrees to abide by the Science embargo.
• Please do not participate in news conferences until after 1:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time the day before publication.
• Any questions about the embargo policy can be addressed to the AAAS Office of Public Programs, at (202) 326-6440. A full statement of the policy is mailed to authors upon acceptance of their papers for publication.





Ayer se conocía la clasificación mundial de la felicidad.
Un estudio dirigido por Ruut Veenhoven y la Universidad Erasmus de Rotterdam. Suena bien, todos los medios se tiran en plancha.
Es una clasificación imposible que ha hecho consumir millones de páginas en los diarios.
Los españoles, según el indicador, tenemos 58,8 años felices en nuestras vidas, ocupamos el puesto 16 de la clasificación. Son unos resultados para ponerlos en cuarentena: no es lo mismo preguntarle a un tipo sobre estas cuestiones si se encuentra en la cola del paro, o si su equipo ha perdido 4-0 o si le ha tocado la primitiva. Absurdo.
