Abstract: A linear order $L$ is strongly surjective if $L$ can be mapped onto any of its suborders in an order preserving way. We review various results on the existence and non-existence of uncountable strongly surjective linear orders answering questions of Camerlo, Carroy and Marcone. In particular, $\diamondsuit^+$ implies the existence of a lexicographically ordered Suslin-tree which is strongly surjective and minimal; every strongly surjective linear order must be an Aronszajn type under $2^{\aleph_0} <2^{\aleph_1}$ or in the Cohen and other canonical models (where $2^{\aleph_0}=2^{\aleph_1}$); finally, we show that it is consistent with CH that there are no uncountable strongly surjective linear orders at all.
