Rates vary and are charged per indexable page. Factors influencing rate include:
• complexity of text
• density of text
• desired depth of indexing/index density
• space available for index
• intended audience
• turnaround time
• indexable material (front/back matter, illustrations, footnotes, etc.)
The most effective way to contract with a freelance indexer is to provide a sample chapter from the middle of the book. I work from final page proofs of manuscripts in pdf format deliverable via email or ftp.
I use Macrex indexing software to meet your specifications, whatever they may be. If you don’t have a style guide, I can help you make decisions about formatting such as alphabetization (letter by letter or word by word,) indented or run-in, capitalization, punctuation, cross reference placement, and locator style (in full or conflated.)
My calendar currently offers some availability. Contact me today to discuss your project.
