*Publisher copyright policies are more likely to permit the deposit of an author accepted manuscript rather than the final article version. An accepted manuscript, also known as a post-print or pre-proof, is a version that has been peer-reviewed with revisions made by the author, but has not been copy-edited, formatted, and does not bear identifying information from the journal.
