I charge per indexable page. My rates vary according to various parameters, such as:
- Number of words per indexable page
- Complexity and depth of the subject
- Type of book (trade/textbook or academic work)
- Desired length of the index
- Specifications of the index (style guide or any special requirements)
- Timescale for the index
For a quote, please send me a general description or abstract of the book to be indexed, with a sample in PDF format (preferably 10–15 pages from the middle of the book).
