In my literature research for a paper I am writing I want to state that a specific term was first coined in a preprint from let's say 2000, but the paper was not published until 2005.
Unfortunately other papers I want to cite that were published in the years between used this term since it was known by then from the preprint. It would be strange if I mentioned both, the preprint from 2000 and the published version from 2005, but saying the term was first coined in the 2005 paper would not be correct. Any ideas on how to handle that issue?
Thanks a lot in advance :)
