Letters to the Editor

The Journal will consider publication of letters to the editor as a mechanism for readers to submit comments, questions, dissenting opinion or criticisms about current events or published articles. Letters that are professional, factual, clearly written, and grammatically correct will be considered for publication. Letters debating or commenting on previously published articles are encouraged and will prompt an invitation from JSCDM to the author of the work subject to the commentary to respond. Letters to the Editor will undergo editorial screening and be evaluated using a reduced rubric to be published alongside other JSCDM articles under the “letter” article type but will not carry the peer-reviewed designation.
