PubMed is not an index technically speaking...  It is a citation
management platform for PubMed Central plus citations indexed for
MEDLINE.  Citations are provided by publishers for the purposes of
linking to prepub articles, PubMed Central contents, or for historical
purpsoes, many are not critically reviewed with MEDLINE indexing.  The
criteria for reposition of journals in PubMed Central is different
than MEDLINE inclusion criteria.

Your comments are well taken, but it is not uncommon for association
publishers to limit access to membership for current journal issues
and trade magazines.   I found out the hard way with getting a library
subscription to the Journal of Addictions Nursing.   Even though my
library paid for a direct subscription, there was an 18 month embargo
of current articles, limited to association members.  Professional
associations have every right to do this but I do not agree with it.
Another example is the Journal of the Medical Library Association,
which is deposited in PubMed Central.  The current issue is available
to members of the MLA only, then the immediate past issue and all
archives are available in PubMed Central.

Science is published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Hi,

I would like to call attention to the practice that some publishers do
not give library access to articles posted on their Web sites ahead of
publication schedule.

Here is an example:  Jinek, Martin. (2014).  Structures of Cas9
Endonucleases Reveal RNA-Mediated Conformational Activation. Science
[0036-8075].

This article was posted on Science Web site on Feb 6, 2014, as a
pre-publication article, and it has been indexed by PubMed.  My
library has current online subscription to Science, and has no problem
accessing other regular articles.  But as of today, access to this
article requires payment.

Publishers should stop this practice.  It confuses both users and
librarians, especially when they try to get the article from an index
and OpenURL link resolver.
