Submission Preparation Checklist
As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
You have carefully reviewed the full submission instructions and verified that your file is compliant with them.
Please pay particular attention to the anonymization requirements, as we have had to reject a number of papers without review for violation of these rules.
The paper is ready to be reviewed --- this is not a "stub" or "test" submission.
The paper is in PDF and formatted using the TACL style files.
The submitted PDF files cannot be overwritten with a re-submission, and there is no way for authors to delete a submission; deletion must be done manually by the editors-in-chief. Therefore, please only upload your paper when it is ready to be reviewed.
The submission has not been previously published, nor is the material in it under for review by another journal or conference.
Futher, no material in it will later be submitted for review at another conference or journal while under review by TACL.
- The submission has not been rejected by TACL (that is, received a decision of category "(d)") in the past 12 months.
The submission has not been submitted to the ACL, EACL, NAACL, or EMNLP conferences within the past 9 months. (See full submission instructions URL above for acceptable exceptions.)
If you are resubmitting a (c)-decision paper (rejection with encouragement to resubmit), the submission contains the three parts requested in a single pdf file.
You'll also fill in the “Comments to the Editor” field as follows. Begin the comment with the words "(C) RESUBMISSION:", and then list the original submission number and the name of the original action editor(s).
If the paper is a resubmission of a type (b) paper (acceptance subject-to/conditional-on specified changes), don't submit it under a new number! Instead, make sure you've created a pdf file concatenating the three requested files together. Then, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line "reactivate TACL <number>" where <number> is the original submission number. In the text, please mention the name and number of the submission, the name of the action editor who gave the (b) decision, and the name of the handling editor-in-chief, and await further instructions.
- If you are submitting a revision of a paper rejected from a conference with a submission deadline in the last nine months, the submission contains a bundle of three parts following the template of resubmission-pkg-conferencerevised.tex .
Also fill in the "Comments to the Editor" field to include the name of the conference that the original version was rejected from.
