There are three versions of a scholarly article:
|Definition||original version of your article that you wrote and submitted to the journal. It has not been peer-reviewed||the version of your article after peer-review but before the final publisher formatting. It should NOT look like the final version. It is typically a Word document.||the final, published version of your article with all of the publisher formatting. It will likely contain headers, footers, page numbers, typesetting, etc.|
|Other Terms||Author's Original Manuscript (AOM), Author's Original (AO), Submitted Version||Accepted Manuscript, Author's Accepted Manuscript, AM||Version of Record (VoR), Published Version, Published Article, Final Version, Final Published Version|
|Example||An example would look similar to a postprint (basically, a Word document). Other examples would be papers found on preprint servers like bioRxiv or SSRN.|
Whether or not you are allowed to submit one or more of these versions to an institutional repository like Touro Scholar depends on your publisher's policies. The Touro Scholar team offers an assisted deposit process which provides a detailed rundown of permissions for your entire CV.

Touro Scholar recommends the use of particular file types in order to increase the likelihood of safely migrating these files into the future.
Most papers in Touro Scholar are in PDF. Word and RTF files are typically converted to PDF when they are imported into the repository.
For supplementary materials and non-paper collections, we recommend the following formats:
Other formats may be included for supplementary materials, but are less likely to be migrated when technology changes. Submissions may be in a different format, but we recommend that the files be additionally made available in one of the above formats.
When technology inevitably migrates to new formats in the future, we will change the format of a file, but not the information in it. For example, the repository managers will not update hyperlinks, other external references, or out-of-date information within a paper or supplementary file.
