I am currently applying for the AFP and I have read that publications for the AFP don't need a PMID.
I have a publication which was accepted into a medical computer science journal which isn't on Pubmed. Therefore, it doesn't have a PMID but it does have a DOI etc.
When I go to insert it into the AFP application, it asks for the following:
PMID/PMCID/don/in press ID:
What is 'don' and 'in press ID'? Is the 'don' my DOI?
Any help would be much appreciated.

I've never heard of "don" and "in press ID" as fixed entities. Google isn't much help either. Surely they just want a unique identifier that they can use to find the publication? I'd have thought that (e.g.) "DOI:10.1002/14651858.CD009196.pub4" would be a perfectly acceptable answer to this question. DOI is the most universally accepted tool for identifying unique documents.
