Stroke resources in Indonesia - coming to Early view

Stroke resources in Indonesia are limited; however, there has been demand to include nonbiomedical practitioners in stroke care. This paper will present a snapshot of available non-biomedical stroke ‘services’ used by stroke survivors in two subdistricts of Aceh, Indonesia. Data were collected through interviews, observations, focus groups and vignettes with stroke survivors and their carers. All practitioners discussed and demonstrated an understanding and approach to stroke treatment with multiple layers of influence, predominantly, education, religion and culture. There were a number of areas of overlap between the two categories; some of these influences were also evident in the biomedical practitioners.

Early view - How to cite an Early View article.

We decided earlier this year to embark on 'Early View' as a way to expedite the publication of our ever increasing manuscript pile. We realize that authors want their manuscripts published as soon as possible; for grants and funding; to increase personal citations, and to share important information with the stroke community. Early View is now online. This means that once the reviewer and revision process is complete and your manuscript has been accepted, we'll copyedit, and make a proof. Once you approve the article will be placed online and can be cited.

Early View articles may not yet be allocated to a print edition, meaning that they do not yet have volume, issue or page numbers, therefore Early View articles cannot be cited in the traditional way. They are given a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), which allows the article to be cited and tracked before it is allocated to an issue. When you cite an article that is not yet published in print but is  published on Early View, you may do so by citing the DOI. After print publication, the DOI remains valid and can continue to be used to cite and access the article.
