Since it has a very low frequency of ocurrence in English, as the author of the article ackowledges, I don't think there is a specific coined term in Spanish. I would go for a small paraphrase, like the one proposed.

Some examples of usage:
La investigación biomédica y sus laberintos
Luis Carlos Silva Ayçaguer - 2008 - ‎Education
... suficientemente cauteloso sobre su validez y aplicabilidad como para retener la publicación de todos sus trabajos mientras sus dudas no fueran disipadas.

Autorregulación de la prensa: una aproximación ético-jurídica a la ...
Ernesto Villanueva - 2002 - ‎Language Arts & Disciplines
... quebrantar la práctica saludable de la prensa implica retener la publicación de ... la verdad, la veracidad y la objetividad informativa a) Información correcta.

O, en lenguaje más formal, "vetar".
