ONLINE FIRST

Every reviewed, finally revised manuscript accepted for publication is first posted on the Online First website. This means that the electronic version of the manuscript, ready for publication in the journal, is posted online immediately upon receiving positive reviews and being accepted for publication, but before the publication of the Journal and assignment of a page number. When the manuscript is published in the Journal, it is removed from the website. After being published online, it is no longer possible to make any modifications. Online First offers authors the possibility of faster access to the manuscript, because it reduced the time from the submission of the manuscript to its publication in the Journal.
