OnlineFirst articles are published online before they appear in a regular issue of the journal. Cancer Research publishes two types of OnlineFirst articles.
OnlineFirst Author Manuscripts are PDF versions of manuscripts that have been peer reviewed and accepted for publication, but not yet copyedited or typeset, allowing readers the most rapid access to accepted papers. They appear on the OnlineFirst page as submitted by the authors. The Author Manuscript remains on the OnlineFirst page until it is either replaced by the final proof version or when the final version of the paper is published in an online issue.
Please note that while we strive to post all accepted manuscripts within two days of their acceptance, there may be editorial considerations, such as a planned press release or the need to coordinate posting of related articles, which may preclude or delay Author Manuscript posting.
Author Manuscripts are normally replaced on the OnlineFirst page by the final proof version of the article, which incorporates author corrections but is not yet paginated.
When papers are published in an issue, they are removed from the OnlineFirst page and appear in the appropriate issue's table of contents. The date of first publication appears below each title, followed by the article's unique Digital Object Identifier (DOI).
While an article is OnlineFirst, it may be cited as shown in the following example:
Atkinson JM, Falconer RA, Edwards DR, et al. Development of a novel tumor-targeted vascular disrupting agent activated by MT-MMPs. (July 27, 2010) Cancer Res, 10.1158/0008-5472.CAN-10-1440.
