Assume a search committee is reading my CV and in the publication section they notice some of my papers are only submitted or claimed to appear in a journal (or accepted for publication in a journal). Sometimes the journal which has accepted the paper for publication lists the title of accepted articles before actually publishing them, but in the rest of cases there is no evidence to prove that the referee process of the paper is over and the journal has accepted the paper for publication. Also assume preprints of my papers are available in ArXiv. So, my questions are:
How a search committee interprets and evaluates those papers which are just submitted or are claimed to appear?
Does a search committee consider these types of publications less valuable than the published ones (assuming the same quality)?
Does a search committee refer to my preprints in ArXiv to evaluate my submitted or accepted papers?
