Notes

If the journal does not have a volume and part number, use the publication date instead (see above). 



Some articles are published online in advance of being formally published in the journal.  These can be called ‘advance online publication’, ‘published ahead of print’ or ‘epub ahead of print’ or a similar variation.  These will often miss some of the standard details given in a journal article reference such as volume number, issue number and page numbers.  Give as many details as you have available for a standard journal article reference.  If you don’t have volume, issue and page numbers, you could use the date of publication online instead.  You will need to include a statement to indicate your article is published online ahead of formal publication.
