Hi Soichi,

Using the pub-type attribute of pub-date is the correct approach. With that attribute, you have several choices, epub, and epreprint.

If the article has been typeset, but not paginated, then I would use pub-type="epub". This usage assume that, except for pagination, it's the final article and it has effectively been published as of that date.

However if the article has been accepted, but not typeset (e.g. a PDF made of the author's submitted Word file), then I would use pub-type="epreprint" since it's a preview of the article, but it's not the final official publication.

Best regards,

Dear all,

I would like to know how to tag an article of advance publication (like Springer's Online first,
publishing accepted articles online before pagination).

Can we use pub-type="advance publication" in pub-date element or use any other attribute in article element?
We are happy if you show your samples.

Thank you.
