The version of the publication to be used for self-archiving is specified. A distinction is made between the originally submitted manuscript (preprint), the manuscript accepted for publication (postprint) and the version that is ultimately published, usually with final typesetting and final layout (version of record). The distinction is crucial because the other conditions are often specified according to the version that is to be self-archived and the conditions sometimes differ significantly depending on the version.
