TACL eligibility of papers declining 'Findings' offer

 
Please note that authors that decline an offer from EMNLP for their paper to be included in the Findings of EMNLP cannot submit the paper to TACL for a 9-month period beginning at the submission deadline of EMNLP.  This is consistent with current TACL guidelines, which state that papers that "have been rejected from or reviewed by" the cited conferences must wait to be submitted to TACL.  See the author guidelines for the specifics of this policy.
