Hello everyone. I am currently trying to write a research paper about the benefits chess provides for academic success. If anyone would happen to know some great sources to find information on the topic, I would appreciate it very much. Thank you.

I would be very surprised if chess improved academic performance. good study habits improves both of course, but I don't think that has anything to do with chess itself.
if I'd put a fraction of the energy I waste on chess into something productive... well you all know how it goes...

However, it's not only chess though. I had a chat with someone else and we believe any game which stimulates your brain would work. Doesn't have to be chess.
Originally posted by AThousandYoungsounds really nice, althought that doesn't really convince me. maybe it's because I'm thinking of how chess ability affects cognitive skills, and they're thinking of the whole social surroundings and implications.
