Definitions of advance online publications vary amongst publishers, generally this refers to peer-reviewed work, but the content may not be copyedited or formatted for final production. Publishers will often assign a DOI to identify the record.
Articles in Press are documents that have been accepted for publication but have not yet been assigned to a journal issue so they will not have date, volume, issue, or page number details or a DOI.
Update your references close to the handing in date and refer to the final version of a work if possible.
