Online Ahead of Print manuscripts have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publishing in Diabetes and will appear in an upcoming issue. They are posted online prior to technical editing, formatting for publication, and author proofing. The American Diabetes Association publishes manuscripts online ahead of print to expedite the dissemination of scientific material as soon as possible after acceptance. Online Ahead of Print manuscripts appear in full in PDF format accompanied by an HTML abstract. Online Ahead of Print articles have been fully peer-reviewed but should not be considered the official version of record, as editing may introduce minor changes to the manuscript text and/or graphics. After a manuscript is edited, formatted, and proofread it will appear in an issue and will be removed from the Online Ahead of Print page.
Online Ahead of Print articles are citable by the unique DOI (digital object identifier) assigned to each article. The article DOI should be used in place of issue, volume, page range, and year of publication.
