What is my accepted manuscript?
Answered By: Open Access Team Last Updated: Apr 16, 2018 Views: 98
The 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 'accepted author manuscript'. This is the version that is mandated by the Open Access Policy for REF 2021.
An 'Author Personal Copy', as provided by some publishers, is not equivalent to an accepted manuscript and should not be uploaded to Pure.
