Note to users:
Pre-press articles are peer reviewed, accepted articles to be published in this publication. When the final article is assigned to volumes/issues of the publication, the pre-press articles version will be removed and the final version will appear in the associated published volumes/issues of the publication. The date an article was first made available online will be carried over. Please be aware that, although Pre-press articles do not have all bibliographic details available yet, they can already be cited using the year of online publication and the DOI, as follows: author(s), article title, Publication (year), DOI.
Please consult the journal’s reference style for the exact appearance of these elements, abbreviation of journal names and use of punctuation.
There are three types of pre-press articles:
- Journal pre-proofs: versions of an article that have undergone enhancements after acceptance, such as the addition of a cover page and metadata, and formatting for readability, but are not yet definitive versions of record. These versions will undergo additional copyediting, typesetting and review before being published in final form, but are provided to give early visibility of the article. Please note that, during the production process, errors may be discovered which could affect the content, and all legal disclaimers that apply to the journal pertain.
- Uncorrected proofs: articles that have been copy edited and formatted, but have not been finalized yet. They still need to be proof-read and corrected by the author(s) and the text could still change before final publication.
- Corrected proofs: articles that contain the authors' corrections. Final citation details, e.g. vulume and/or issue number, publication year and page numbers, still need to be added and the text might change before final publication.
