GUDID "Grace Period" Reduced from 30 Days to 7 Days

Today, the "grace period" for all GUDID records was changed from 30 days to 7 days. After a GUDID record’s Publish Date passes, the record enters its grace period. During the grace period, the record remains nonpublic and editable by the author. After the grace period ends, the record appears publicly on AccessGUDID.

Starting March 11, 2019 all records 7 days past their Publish Date will appear on AccessGUDID.
