How much will the index cost


Texts can vary enormously in length, density, complexity and layout. Generally projects work out close to Society of Indexers' recommended rates.

Factors affecting the cost include:

density of text
density of indexing
author and research references
figures, tables, diagrams
consultation of author
use of reference sources
amendments to proofs
timescale available for work
special layouts


Each commission will be estimated individually based on a proof sample or other details providing sufficient information for a quote to be given.

Negotiation is possible and budgets can often be accommodated.
