Definitions of advance online publication vary among journal publishers. Sometimes articles appearing in advance online publication databases have been edited, sometimes they have not. They may or may not have a DOI assigned. If there is not a DOI, leave that element off the citation. For many publishers, these articles are the version of record and thus are, technically, published.


Author, A. A., & Author, B. B. (Year). Title of article: Title of subtitle if provided. Title of Journal. Advance online publication.


Jahanbakhsi, A. P., & Kheiralipour, K. (2019). Influence of vermicompost and sheep manure on mechanical properties of tomato fruit. Food Science & Nutrition. Advance online publication.

Always cite the most recent version of the article - if the article has been officially published, use the regular journal citation format.
