Most publishers will permit authors to self-archive their final accepted manuscript (AAM) of a journal paper, this is the version you should deposit, ideally as soon as it is accepted for publication.

The final accepted manuscript is the version that must be uploaded to Beckett Research Online at acceptance to be eligible for submission to the next REF. The final published PDF (the final version that appears on the Publisher's website) cannot be uploaded to for this purpose.
