The term usually refers to the self-archiving of peer reviewed research journal and conference articles as well as theses, deposited in the author's own institutional repository or open archive for the purpose of maximizing its accessibility, usage and citation impact.

About 91% of peer-reviewed journals surveyed by eprints already endorse authors self-archiving preprint and/or postprint versions of their papers.

Whereas the right to self-archive postprints is a copyright matter, the right to self-archive preprints is merely a question of journal policy.
