About The Indexer

Print ISSN: 0019-4131 Online ISSN:1756-0632

The Indexer is published on behalf of indexing societies worldwide.  It seeks to cover the full range of subjects, from articles at the cutting edge of new techniques to contributions discussing in a practical way the new tools available to indexers at all points in the technical spectrum or exploring the history of indexing.

Its reviews section covers both printed and electronic material, including websites and hardware and software of interest to the indexer, while ‘Indexes Reviewed’ highlights some of the best (and worst) examples of indexing in action.

Through regular conference reports it also keeps readers up to date with what is going on across the international indexing community.

First published by the Society of Indexers (UK) in 1958 on a twice-yearly basis, it moved in 2008 to a quarterly publication.  From 2019 the journal is published by Liverpool University Press.

Have your say...

Forty years on from a request in the April 1982 issue for feedback on The Indexer, we are running a survey looking at how people find content in the journal.  However, this is a survey with a difference... we want you to have fun doing it!
