Dear all,

My name is Soichi Kubota from Japan Science and Technology Agency.
We operate an electronic journal platform, on which a number of
Japanese societies publish their journals.

I would like to discuss about "ahead of print" article XML.

First, an "ahead of print" version article is published online with
only an article id.
And then the final version (with full bibliographic information, such
as volume number, issue number, pages) is also published online

We use "elocation-id".element to identify article with no pages of
"ahead of print" version article.
Then it will have page numbers when it become final version which
corresponds to print version.
So the XML file of the final version should have both elocation-id and
It is similar to the situation one journal may have both print ISSN/online ISSN.

But JATS dtd prohibits coexistence of elocation-id and fpage/lpage/page-range.
I think they need not to be prohibited.

I would like JATS dtd to permit the coexistence of elocation-id and

I would also be grateful if you give us how you correlate AOP version
with print version in one XML.
Thank you.

Best wishes,
