Nothing does more to damage to an organization’s credibility than publishing inaccurate information — yet errors frequently occur.
This self-directed course is designed to help you avoid the traps that lead to inaccuracies. You’ll get the knowledge and tools necessary to become more accurate in what you publish in print, over the airwaves or online. You’ll learn the fundamentals of verification and error prevention. You will also learn something even more basic — how and why errors occur during publication. By the end of the course, you will gain an appreciation for the challenges of verifying information in a networked world and an understanding of how best to do so.
This course has been newly updated in 2023. It can be taken independently or as part of the ACES Certificate in Editing.
