Initially, the self-archiving method created confusion among commercial publishers but the majority of publishers now do permit authors to post their articles online in the form of a preprint (the version originally submitted to the journal), as a post-print (the final, peerreviewed and accepted but not yet edited version), as a final version as prepared for publication, or even the final published version with all its formatting (typically in PDF format). The permitted posting sites may be either authors’ personal websites, departmental or other institutional websites, or organized institutional repositories or subject-based repositories such as ArXiv, D-space, e-print, or E-LIS.
