Some journals have restrictive publication policies that do not allow authors to upload manuscripts to E-print archives. This is because they regard this as prior publication, and so will not publish articles posted in this manner. On the other hand, such manuscripts can sometimes be made available on an author's personal web site.
This is a curious position for these journals to take, because it implicitly assumes that the journal is providing no value-added other than distribution. Why would one want to publish in a journal that has such a limited view of itself? Sometimes these policies arise in well-regarded journals, that have not yet properly thought out their role.
More enlightened journals, such as Physical Review and even Nature allow preprint distribution by the web.
