To be considered for review, your survey must be:

  • Accompanied by a completed Survey Application upon submission
  • Received by SCCM at least 6 weeks prior to the requested survey publication date
  • No more than 25 questions in length
  • Clearly written, relevant, and concise
  • Addressed to a multiprofessional audience
