1. Is the proof or off-print the same as the post-print version?
No, unlike post-prints which are produced by the author, proofs and offprints are delivered to the author from the publisher. Proofs and offprints have been formatted and reflect any layout or copyediting done by the publisher in preparation for publication. Proofs and offprints should not be deposited in institutional repositories.
