TACL acceptance/final-version deadlines for EMNLP 2023


To be eligible for presentation (oral or poster) at EMNLP 2023, TACL papers must satisfy both of the following conditions:

  • first: be accepted with a decision type (a) by Friday, September 22, 2023 and;
  • second:  the final version must be approved by TACL by October 6, 2023 (to allow ample time for the technical approval by the Action Editor, we suggest submitting the final version at least 10 business days prior to the second deadline: September 29th).

See the section on Presentation of Accepted TACL Papers at Conferences in the author guidelines for more details.

New TACL co-Editors-in-Chief


Roi Reichart and Asli Celikyilmaz have been selected to be co-Editors-in-Chief (co-EiCs) of TACL, which will bring the number of co-EiCs to three (along with Ani Nenkova) when Brian Roark finishes his term at the end of 2022. Congratulations to Roi and Asli!

The temporary expansion to three co-EiCs will last until the end of Ani Nenkova's term in 2024, when TACL will revert to its standard 2 co-EiCs. The expansion is in support of initiatives that require effort beyond the regular operation of the journal.

TACL's first impact factor

We are pleased to announce that in 2021 TACL had an impact factor of 9.194.  This is the first time that an impact factor has been measured for TACL, as the journal was only recently indexed by the Web of Science.  Interested parties are referred to a recent MIT Press blog post for more information as well as a message of thanks from the co-Editors-in-chief to the TACL community as a whole.  Thanks everyone for all the hard work!

Policy regarding papers withdrawn from conferences


The "Resubmission Policy for ACL, EACL, NAACL, EMNLP Conference Submissions" has been revised to clarify the status of papers withdrawn from conferences.

The short version is: "TACL considers papers that were reviewed by a conference and not accepted, such as papers that were withdrawn during an author response period before an official decision was received, to have been rejected from the conference."

See the Author Guidelines for the full version.
