At Student Success we refer to an early release as an article or practice report that has been selected for immediate release due to its innovativeness, the contemporary nature of the topic and the level of interest it will conceivably generate. The submission has undergone the peer review process, has been accepted for publication and has undergone a technical edit. The production phase includes journal layout and quality assurance activities. When the next scheduled issue is complete, the early release manuscript becomes part of that issue and will no longer appear on the early release page.
Please note the citations on each manuscript – early release and in the subsequent issue – and cite appropriately when referencing.
