INDEXING QUALIFICATIONS: Fellow (formerly Registered Indexer) which is the highest qualification of the Society of Indexers (SI)

INDEXING EXPERIENCE: Over 25 years (and 1600+ books/journals). I index in a wide area of subjects but have used my academic experience to specialise in texts in life sciences, particularly medicine (in virtually all specialisms) as well as pharmacology, veterinary studies, nursing, sports medicine, nutrition etc. and biology and biochemistry (including the specialised areas of molecular biology, biotechnology, genetics etc.). I also index texts at less specialised levels incl. secondary education, and "trade" books in subjects like geography, history, travel, sport, photography. Example titles include:

SERVICES: Indexes are produced on a PC, using Macrex, a specialised indexing program ensuring accuracy in composition. Indexes are usually supplied by email and/or disc in RTF or Word format. By working full-time, I can supply an index for (as an example) a 300 page text routinely within a week - often less (depending on current workload). I have never missed a promised deadline in all my career.
