What do "pre-print" and "post-print" mean in scholarly publishing?

A pre-print, also referred to as the author’s submitted manuscript, is the full draft of a manuscript that is submitted to a journal for consideration. It’s the version of the article that precedes formal peer review and publication.

A post-print, also referred to as an author-accepted manuscript, is the final version of an article after it has been peer-reviewed and accepted, but before it has been typeset and formatted by the journal.
