Ginny Redish and Judy Ramey (University of Washington) are collaborating
on the study, "Measuring the Value Added by Technical Communicators."
They expect to complete their work in March, so I think we'll see
something in print in the last half of 1994.

Ginny and Judy have an article in the September, 1993, *Intercom*
(page 10) in which they describe their research and include some
preliminary findings.
