There are five types of Articles in Press:
- Accepted manuscripts: articles that have been peer reviewed and accepted for publication by the Editorial Board. They have not yet been copy edited and/or formatted in the publication house style, and may not yet have full functionality, e.g., supplementary files may still need to be added, links to references may not resolve yet, etc.
- Uncorrected proofs: articles that have been copy edited and formatted, but have not been finalized yet. They still need to be proof-read and corrected by the author(s) as well as by the managing editors and the text could still change before final publication. If you are the EIC or corresponding author of an article and anything needs to be changed, please refer to THIS PORTAL and submit a PDF file which contains your comments.
- Corrected proofs: articles that contain the authors' corrections. Final citation details, e.g. volume and/or issue number, publication year and page numbers, still need to be added and the text might change before final publication.
- Primary Published: A "Primary published" article is a manuscript which is accepted for publication and comments from author(s) or editor(s) are not applied completely. Any article in this step could be subjected to postpone or withdraw or even retract from further publication process based on the editorial board decision.

- Final Published: These articles are published as the final version and no more changes are acceptable.
