The general format for a reference to a forthcoming journal article, including punctuation:

Illustration of the general format for a reference to a forthcoming
journal article.

Examples of Citations to Forthcoming Journal Articles

Forthcoming material consists of journal articles or books accepted for publication but not yet published. "Forthcoming" has replaced the former "in press" because changes in the publishing industry make the latter term obsolete.

Do not include as forthcoming those articles that have been submitted for publication but have not yet been accepted for publication. Note that some publishers will not accept references to any form of unpublished items in a reference list.

You may add the affiliation of the first author or additional authors of the article to the citation to facilitate retrieval in the event there is some delay or change in final publication. For journal articles you may also include the exact volume and issue number if known.

For more examples of the components of citations, see Chapter 1A Journal Articles.
