FAQ Question

Does Semantic Scholar display the online publication date or the print publication date?

We realize there are varying strategies around which date to display because of potential impact on citations, annual research evaluations, and in publishing competing research. If you believe Semantic Scholar is not displaying the correct publication date, please reach out to us.
