Think about the last time you picked up a magazine in the checkout aisle of a grocery store. Did you select a magazine, not because it had the most
interesting articles, but because it had the fewest grammatical mistakes?

You didn’t?

What kind of a communicator are you?

(Just kidding. You’re reading, so you’re a good one. )


Ragan’s new distance-learning site houses the most comprehensive video training library for corporate communicators.

So you don’t have to comb through magazines to determine which have the most accurately written content, the team at Grammarly did it for you.

In a recent infographic, Grammarly lists the men’s and women’s magazines
that have the fewest spelling, grammar and punctuation errors.

Here are a few of the findings:

  • “Playboy” and “Maxim” are among the top four most accurate men’s magazines.
  • Women’s magazines have more writing mistakes than men’s magazines.
  • Articles in men’s magazines are slightly longer than those in women’s magazines.
