Louisa Emmons

INDEXING

  • I provide thorough and detailed professional book indexes, carefully edited.
  • Indexes are usually returned before the deadline.
  • I index textbooks, trade books, and scholarly works from manuscripts submitted as PDF files.
  • Indexes are created in SKY Index and returned as MS Word .docx or .rtf files.
  • I will work on a quick deadline as my schedule permits.
  • I gladly index a variety of subjects, but areas of particular interest include:
    • (1) environmental science
    • (2) climate change
    • (3) sustainability and conservation
    • (4) natural history
  • Charges are computed per indexable page for trade books, textbooks, and scholarly works. Special formats can be computed by word count.    
  • Please contact me for rates, which are negotiable depending on the project:  louisa.emmons.indexing@gmail.com
