The mention "In press" is displayed in the citation: think of updating your deposit after your document has been published.

Please note that this metadata should only be used for documents accepted for publication. It should not be used for documents that are already mentioned on the publisher's website, with a DOI and the "in press" mention. For a document that is not yet accepted (submitted), choose the type of document "Preprints/Working papers".

Warning: This option is different from the embargo one.

Please note that this field cannot be used to retrieve metadata.
