Phytopathologia Mediterranea publishes Just Accepted Articles. This feature allows final revision articles to be hosted online prior to their inclusion in a final print and online journal issue.
The only difference between Just Accepted and issue publication will be the citation details and the addition of the Online First publication date to the second version.
Each Just Accepted article has a unique Digital Object Identifier (DOI). This should be included in all citations. DOIs provide a persistent, permanent way to identify manuscripts published in the online environment, even after they are assigned to a print issue. Information such as volume, issue, and page numbers are not allocated to Just Accepted articles (as that information is not known until the issue is completed), therefore these manuscripts should be cited as follows:
Rossi, A. Prepublished Month, Year, Article title. Phytopathologia Mediterranea. DOI: 10.14601/Phytopathol_Mediterr-0123456789123456
After the article is assigned to a specific issue, new citations can be made using volume and page number information, while still using the DOI:
Rossi, A. 2014. Article title. Phytopathologia Mediterranea 33, 211-217. DOI: 10.14601/Phytopathol_Mediterr-0123456789123456
