Selling your work to different magazines. What guidelines?

Hi everyone,
i’m here asking something that to the ears of full-blown, seasoned professionals might sound obvious but i personally have no real clue as this would be the last thing i’d ask to photo editors. And in a globalised world as far as media are concerned it seems urgent to me.

Q: When you shop your work around, what’s the general policy? Let’s say i go to a magazine in Belgium and they take my essay on paper or in their website. Is it fair to call some magazine in , say, USA or France and see if they are interested? Or simultaneous publication may hurt your relationship with editors/magazines?
Thanks to everyone who takes the time to shed some light,

talk to the editors and ask what kind of license (exclusive use, how long, which country(ies) etc.) they want. Set your price accordingly

Thanks Hans, that’s a good, much needed advice.

With your suggestions in mind, now i understand why some photo agencies show temporarily restricted work.
