Open Access and the Aalto University: Choosing a journal to submit your work to

Terminology

Embargo refers to a period of time defined by the publisher, calculated from the publishing time of the original publication, during which the author has no permission of publishing a self-archived open access copy of a publication

APC (article processing charge) refers to a fee often gathered to cover the costs of gold open access publishing, e.g. the costs of the peer-review process. 

Pre-print refers to the work as it was when submitted to the publisher for peer-review, i.e. pre-peer-review version of the article.  

Post-print (also final draft or author accepted manuscript) refers to the post-peer-review version of the work as it was before the publisher created the final layout for the work (logos, etc.)

Final published version (also publisher PDF) refers to the work in the form in which the publisher disseminates it.
