Revision (addendum) to the JAV Recommended Practice to address issues regarding the "Proof" version.
Journal Article Versions (JAV)
These recommendations provide a simple, practical way of describing the versions of scholarly journal articles that typically appear online before, during, and after formal journal publication. The Recommended Terms and Definitions for Journal Article Versions define journal articles at seven stages: Author's Original (AO), Submitted Manuscript Under Review (SMUR), Accepted Manuscript (AM), Proof (P), Version of Record (VoR), Corrected Version of Record (CVoR), and Enhanced Version of Record (EVoR). The appendices include a set of use cases showing application of the recommended terms and a graphical representation of journal article versions and relationships with formal and gray literature.
