Ladies’ Home Journal was the most accurate women’s title. Playboy was No. 4 on Grammarly’s list of accurate men’s magazines, the same position held by Family Circle on its list of women’s mags.
The men’s magazines Grammarly backread were more accurate on average, chalking up 0.9 mistakes per 100 words compared to 1.4 mistakes per 100 words in women’s titles. But the women’s magazines walloped men’s mags in terms of readership, pulling in 3,150,616 readers as opposed to 1,043,580.
