Research on spreadsheet errors began over fifteen years ago. During that time, there has been ample evidence demonstrating that spreadsheet errors are common and nontrivial. Quite simply, spreadsheet error rates are comparable to error rates in other human cognitive activities and are caused by fundamental limitations in human cognition, not mere sloppiness. Nor does ordinary "being careful" eliminate errors or reduce them to acceptable levels. 
Teaching methods are erroneous: approaches which lead to erroneous end-user computing
TLDR
Teachers should believe in the incremental nature of science and have high self-efficacy to make students understand and appreciate science, and it is high time fundamental changes were introduced.
Defending the future: An MSc module in End User Computing Risk Management
TLDR
The rationale, curriculum and subject matter of a new MSc module being taught on an MSc Finance and Information Management course at the University of Wales Institute in Cardiff, an attempt to arm the next generation of finance spreadsheet champions with the relevant knowledge, techniques and critical perspective on an emerging discipline.
Introducing Morphit, a new type of spreadsheet technology
TLDR
A new type of spreadsheet which mitigates the errors caused by incorrect range referencing in formulae, composed of structured worksheets called tables which contain a hierarchical organization of fields.
Fehlererkennung in Spreadsheets
TLDR
The concept of an inspection-facility for spreadsheets is proposed, laying the technical foundation to check spreadsheets for errors with statical and dynamic means and making it possible to execute configurable static tests that check spreadsheet for indiviudal policies.

Spreadsheet Errors: What We Know. What We Think We Can Do
TLDR
To date, only one technique, cell-by-cell code inspection, has been demonstrated to be effective, and the degree to which other techniques can reduce spreadsheet errors needs to be determined.
Training Gamble leads to Corporate Grumble?
TLDR
To date, only one technique, cell-by-cell code inspection, has been demonstrated to be effective, and further research is needed to determine the degree to which other techniques can reduce spreadsheet errors.
Teaching spreadsheet development using peer audit and self-audit methods for reducing error
TLDR
A teaching approach has been devised which aids students to reduce their likelihood of making common errors during development by educating students in a set of structured, transferable skills for spreadsheet error-checking which are useful for increasing error-awareness in the classroom and for reducing business risk in the workplace.
Applying the CobiT Control Framework to Spreadsheet Developments
TLDR
This paper illustrates how spreadsheet risk and control issues can be mapped onto the CobiT framework and thus brought to managers attention in a familiar format.
A Structured Methodology for Spreadsheet Modelling
TLDR
A methodology for structured software development is proposed, which is based on structured analysis of data, represented as Jackson diagrams, and it is shown that this analysis allows a straightforward modularisation, and that individual modules may be represented with indentation in the block-structured form of structured programs.
