<p>This dataset contains all journal embargo periods published by Elsevier in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017, for both UK and non-UK authors. It also contains a set of notes on the overall statistics and annual changes between lists.<br></p> <p>In summary, 88.2% of currently published Elsevier journals (in 2017) offer a twelve-month or less embargo period for UK authors, and 61% for non-UK authors; this proportion has generally increased since 2013, as has the number of journals covered. The majority of journals have a stated embargo period, though around 90 current titles do not as yet have one.</p> <p>A number of substantial anomalies developed between the lists in 2013 and 2014, with journals being removed or having their embargo periods extended. However, as of 2017, these have generally been corrected.</p>
