Publishing agreements often distinguish between three different versions of an article when describing what self-archiving is acceptable:
- Pre-print (or preprint)
- Version submitted to journal (pre-refereeing)
- Also called the "submitted manuscript" or "submitted version"
- Post-print (or postprint)
- Author’s final version, post-refereeing, without publisher’s formatting
- Also called the "accepted manuscript" or "final accepted version"
- Final version
- Version as it appears in journal
- Also called the "version of record,” the "publisher's version," or the "PDF version" (the latter is a misnomer)
