The Romeo table gives partial answers:

"Blue" publishers support preprint self-archiving, "green" publishers
support both postprint and preprint self-archiving. "Preprint" normally
means the unrefereed draft and postprint the refereed draft, but by
"preprint" some publishers mean their own PDF and some mean their PDF by
"postprint"! So the Romeo results will have to be clarified.

In general, a blue publisher supports the self-archiving of *at least* the
pre-refereeing draft and a green publisher at least the refereed draft.
