The AAPG/Datapages Combined Publications Database

AAPG Bulletin

Ahead of Print

The AAPG Bulletin Ahead of Print publishing program provides readers with the earliest possible access to articles that have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication. These articles have not been copyedited and are posted "as is," and do not reflect AAPG editorial changes. Once the accepted manuscript appears in the Ahead of Print area, it will be prepared for print and final online publication, which includes copyediting, typesetting, proofreading, and author review. This process will likely lead to differences between the accepted manuscript and the final, printed version. Manuscripts will remain in this Ahead of Print area until the final, typeset articles are printed. Supplemental material intended, and accepted, for publication is not posted until the printing of the final, typeset article.

AAPG members and AAPG Bulletin subscribers have full access to these articles as a regular benefit. These items are also available through the AAPG/Datapages Pay-Per-View program.
