ACES is interested in sponsoring, fostering and publicizing research about editing. In 2011, the organization released results of a study that showed that readers notice errors in news stories and find them distracting.
ACES has also convened a panel of professors to connect our members to research relevant to their careers. If you have a research idea or are aware of a study that may be of interest to ACES, please contact us.
Following are links to downloadable PDFs of current editing research articles:
