The publisher pdf usually contains the publisher's formatting with citation information and page numbers. 

The final manuscript version is the author's final copy following peer review and contains the same content but with less formatting and usually no reference to the publisher or citation.

What is the difference between a publisher version and a final manuscript version of a document?
