Music on the job
I've read a lot of debate at Testy Copy Editors on whether it is appropriate for copy editors to listen to music while working. Many say it helps them concentrate. Many say it keeps people from hearing important discussions going on around them. Some say it's unprofessional.
But I found this buried in a feature about Mozart.
Scientists at the University of Washington found that the accuracy of 90 copy editors increased by 21.3 percent when they listened to light classical music.Anyone know more?
