The Journal of the American College of Surgeons (JACS) has initiated a new online feature: "In Press Accepted Manuscripts." With this program, accepted manuscripts are now published online at www.journalacs.org just more than one week after acceptance. The accepted manuscript (in both full-text and PDF) is fully citable and searchable by title, author(s) name, and article text. Importantly, each article also carries a disclaimer noting that it is an unedited manuscript that has not yet been copyedited, typeset, or proofread. When the fully copyedited version is ready for publication, it will replace the author-accepted manuscript version online. This process will increase the speed of publication of JACS articles, adding to the potential for more citations and more visibility.
