And would it be worth explicitly clarifying something I remember coming up last time? By submitting for exclusive review are you also 1, representing that you've withdrawn the piece from every other journal where it's still under consideration, and 2, committing not to withdraw the piece during the review period even if it hasn't been accepted yet?

Prof. Baude, (2) is correct. For (1), withdrawing from other journals is not necessary. Authors can accept other pending offers after we've made a decision on their article, but not before.

Sean, doesn't your 4:52 comment contradict Dan's description of the process? How can an author "accept other pending offers after [FSULR has] made a decision" if the author has already "agree[d] to accept an offer [from FSULR] should one be extended"?

Tim, good point. To clarify: the 'can' in my post should be read as subject to Prof. Markel's description. Authors can accept another pending offer after we let them know we will not be publishing their article. I assumed that if we published their article, whether to withdraw from other journals would not be an issue.
