Plans are taking shape for a summit on plagiarism and fabrication being organized by the American Copy Editors Society. ACES President Teresa Schmedding called on other national journalism organizations to join ACES in tackling the problem.
The event will take place April 5 in St. Louis during ACES national conference.
Former ACES Executive Committee member Bill Connolly, a retired senior editor of The New York Times and a co-author of its style manual and its policy on ethics and conflicts of interest, will lead the team. Connolly is a founding member of ACES and has served as the president of its Education Fund.
