Simultaneous Submissions
« on: February 28, 2016, 07:17:50 PM »
Hello all,

Does anyone know how publishers feel about simultaneous submissions (when one submits a single puzzle to more than one publisher)?  In other publications (say, literary journals) it usually states on their submission page whether this is a no-no or not, but I don't see anything on the spec sheets posted here.

Thanks for any feedback!

I think it would be a good way to get banned from a paper/site as if two or more entities accepted your puzzle, then you would have to back out of all but one as they require copyright.

A crossword puzzle is a manuscript, you wouldn't submit a novel to multiple publishers either. Its simply not done.

But I do understand the desire... parallel versus serial search space plumbing. Would be great if we could spam the world with a puzzle submission and the first entity to accept would lock in a deal and cancel all others. Ethereum could totally do that. Oh the future of blockchain-type contracts.
