You no longer have to wait for hot research to come to print before referencing it!
Articles in Press (AiP) are all articles accepted for publication. AiP are assigned an unique digital object identifier (DOI). The DOI may be used to cite and link to electronic documents. The assigned DOI never changes. Therefore it is ideal for citing documents, particularly AiP which have not yet received their full bibliographic information. When citing the article, include author(s), year and article title information in the format of the journal reference style and also include the full DOI.
