Continuous Article Publishing
As of 2020, Marine Biodiversity will change its publication structure from paginated issues to a consecutive publishing model: Continuous Article Publishing.
This means that papers are published in a volume/issue immediately after acceptance and printed within 2 months at most after being published online. As a further aspect of the new system, articles are no longer paginated sequentially by issue. Therefore, every article starts with page number 1. Page numbers are not used for article citation but every article has a citation ID number, called the ArticleCitationID. The ArticleCitationID is replacing the page numbers in the citation line, which includes the journal citation title, year, volume number and ArticleCitationID now .
Example: Mar Biodiv (2020) 50: 12
This method of citation is accepted by the Web of Science/Journal Citation Reports (ISI).
