Why are there a variety of publication dates on an output record in the Research Repository?

Aimed at:  Edinburgh Napier’s staff

Accepted date = is the date when the publisher formally agrees to publish your paper. This date should be added when creating the record.

Submitted date = is the date when the item was initially sent to a journal or publisher and should be added when the record is created.

Online publication date = this is the earliest date the item was published. For journal articles it can be the date the peer-reviewed copy was published on the journal webpage. In some instances this date will be automatically added. e.g when creating a new record using the deposit by DOI.

Publication date = this is the date the version of record was published. Usually added manually.
