Open Access and the REF

Which version of the work do I submit?

Typically the version of the work needed for TeesRep submission is the Authors Accepted Manuscript: the author-generated version of the manuscript following peer review and including any revisions of an academic nature.

The Accepted Manuscript is usually the author’s final working version and should include changes from peer review but not the publisher’s logo or the design of the published version. This version may also be referred to as a ‘post-print’, ‘version 2’ or the camera ready version depending on your publisher. Publishers proofs are not acceptable.
