The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing

Same publication + many indexers = ???

The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (2012), 30, (2), 98–100.

Abstract

A common assumption amongst book indexers is that we all index differently, and as a result, we all produce different indexes. This assumption was put to the test during ANZSI Victorian Branch’s third communal indexing event. Results confirmed this premise, but does an author or publisher want this level of variation, or do they have just one index in mind?
