Q54. Date of Publication of a Paper Submitted to a Journal

Q54. Date of Publication of a Paper Submitted to a Journal
 Would a paper submitted for consideration by a professional journal be a “publication” as of the date it is submitted to the journal (i.e., before the journal actually prints the paper)?

A54. No. Even though the paper has been submitted for consideration by a professional journal, it has not been actually distributed to a person having no secrecy obligation. Therefore, the actual distribution date of the journal is considered to be the publication date.
