What is my final accepted manuscript?

The final accepted manuscript is the author’s final version of the article, after changes from peer review have been incorporated. It is usually a plain document without the publisher’s formatting and copy edit changes. In Pure this document is referred to as the postprint. This is the version that is mandated by HEFCE for the next REF.

An 'Author Personal Copy', as provided by some publishers, is not equivalent to a postprint and should not be uploaded to Pure.
