Release date

The date on which a new book is first supplied to retail customers. Some books, mainly at the trade end of the spectrum, have globally or regionally co-ordinated release dates, which means that outlets (wholesale and retail) that receive stock early are subject to an embargo on selling before the release date.

This definition is extracted from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup. It was first referred to in the blog Getting Published in a post on setting the copyright date.
