Abstract/Summary In the digital age we are now faced with the potential for multiple copies of research articles to be discoverable on the internet. Aside from the publisher’s official version, there may be copies on author’s websites, institutional repositories or funder’s repositories, each of which may vary slightly from the others. The terms “postprint” or “preprint” are used in a variety of ways and there has been no consistency in how the terms are defined, making it extremely difficult to determine the relationship between any two versions of a paper. In order to address this problem, NISO (the National Information Standards Organization) issued, in June 2008, NISO RP-8-2008, Journal Article Versions (JAV): Recommendations of the NISO/ALPSP JAV Technical Working Group, as a “recommended practice” for describing versions of scholarly journal articles. This document was the result of nearly three years of work sponsored by NISO and ALPSP (the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers). As a member of the technical working group that developed the recommendations, this author will describe the process, outcomes and proposed implementation of the recommendations.
