Embargo The time period set by the publisher from the publication of the original article during which parallel publishing of the article is not allowed.  Breaking the embargo period means that you break your contract with the publisher, thus making the parallel published version illegal. The embargo time period starts when the issue of the journal is published, depending on the date of publication of either the electronic version or a printed journal, whichever takes place first. In other contexts embargo may refer, for example, to the time period during which the publisher refrains from publishing an electronic, licensed, non-open-access version of a journal that is also published in printed form. An embargo does not always exist and it may be different for journals published by different publishers and/or in different fields (SSH Journals/STM Journals). 

Final draft version = Post-print / author’s final / author accepted manuscript version Refers to the post-peer-reviewed and accepted version of the article, before the publisher has created the final layout for the work. This is generally the version that the publishers allow researchers to parallel publish.

Final published version (or publisher PDF) Refers to the version of the article that the publisher distributes electronically.  Final version laid out by the publisher.

General conditions The other preconditions for publishing the article set by the publisher. Determining, for example, in which venues parallel publishing is allowed and reminding the author how to cite original sources.
