Hi! Can I cite a paper for a scientific journal that is "In Progress" but not yet "In Press" ? Thank you!

According to the book Mastering Scientific and Medical Writing, the preferred way to cite an item that has been accepted for publication is to use the term Forthcoming after the title of the journal.  Apparently NLM prefers that term because not all items will be printed.
