Indexing Service

Price $2.00 per Item

Indexes are found in the back of nonfiction titles. They are used to maximize the usability of a nonfiction title, readers, book buyers, librarians, and reviewers will expect you to include an index in your book. For readers who are looking for specific materials often look at the index to ensure the topics they are looking for are contained within. Below are a few other reasons to include an index in your book:

  • Book buyers, librarians, researchers, and academics often buy books based on the detail and functionality of the index.

  • Reviewers will recommend a book with a good index and will review badly those books that contain a poorly constructed index or have no index at all.

  • Many librarians will not purchase a book without an index.

  • An index enables your readers to find information quickly and easily in your published manuscript. It will greatly improve the reading experience and will improve cohesiveness, consistency, accuracy, and usefulness


When purchasing the indexing add-in, we will read your manuscript and tag appropriate words to create a dynamic index. This means that any changes to your layout’s pagination will automatically reflect in the index. A computer-generated keyword index lists a page number for a key term each time it occurs in the book.


We create a one-of-a-kind index that meets industry standards. When selecting key words to tag we will analyze your entire book, anticipating line items your reader will most likely want to find and listing them in an intuitive, accessible manner. We keep in mind the focus, purpose, and organization of the book.

The resulting high-quality index is the standard found throughout the publishing industry.



*There is a 5,000-word minimum charge for all editing services.


* We craft indexes from the final, formatted, author-approved pages. Changes made after indexing may alter and detract from the index's usability or may lead to additional charges to correct the index.


* A concordance-type index has no logical organization other than alphabetization, and only exact word matches can be indexed using the approach.
