The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing

Geographic distribution of authors in The Indexer, 1988–2007

The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (2008), 26, (3), 106–110.

Abstract

Catherine Sassen reports on her study of the geographic location of authors contributing to volumes 16 through 25 of The Indexer. Although the majority of authors were from the United Kingdom, there was a steady increase in the participation of authors from other countries throughout the 20-year period. Authors from outside the United Kingdom made up 14.86 percent of all authors in 1988–91, and grew to 38.27 percent in 2004–07. Geographic diversity was found to be greater among authors of articles than among authors of editorials, letters, or reviews.
