Online first is a feature offered by the Documenta Praehistorica journal through the Open Journal Systems platform. It allows completed articles queued for an upcoming issue to be published online before they are included in the final print and online editions of the journal. Information such as journal issue and DOI will be assigned to online first articles. Page numbers will not be assigned as this information will not be known until the issue is completed. Each online first article will be citable with the date of online first publication, journal issue and DOI. DOIs are assigned to all Documenta Praehistorica articles and provide a permanent means of identifying manuscripts published in the online environment, even after they have been assigned to a print edition. Once an online first article has appeared in the final online and print issues and has received its full bibliographic data (pagination), hosting of the article will transition from the Online First listing to that of the Current Issue. Normally, the article will not change from this version (except by adding pagination). Authors will not be asked to revise their articles again.
