First time here, I hope I do well asking this question. I didn't any answer.
This is my situation: I presented a research in a colloquium last June. Now I want to publish it as an article. Is it OK if I send an abstract to several journals at the same time simply asking if they would be interested in the full article? I mean, I guess it would accelerate a lot the process of getting my paper published if I don't have to wait weeks or months before being refused simply because my paper is not interesting to them... I'm new in the academic world, so I don't know if it's unethical.
What do you think?
