Rates & References


Catalyst Communication Arts


I will be happy to provide a per-page price quote based on a sample chapter taken from the interior of the book (not the first chapter, which usually is introductory and not typical of the rest of the volume). Rates generally range from $3.00 to $7.00 per page and are based on several factors:

· Density of text: A light indexing job might involve 2-3 entries per page; a very in-           depth index might require 10 or more entries per page.

  • Page size and number of columns: The larger the page, the more text to index; two or more columns generally means more text as well.

  • Type of material: Scholarly or highly technical texts require more specialized knowledge and more time to index. Trade books generally are "lighter" and take less time and expertise.
