    The prevailing view, as far as I am aware, is that making multiple
    simultaneous submissions is unethical. My posting implies that this
    should really depend on the INTENT of the author. If he/she is really just
    trying to get a paper published expeditiously, then I do not think the ORI
    should be concerned. But if the intent is to pad out a curriculum vitae so
    as to increase the probability of getting a grant, tenure or promotion,
    then the INTENT is to deceive one's peers and the OSI should be concerned.

               Sincerely,   Don Forsdyke
