Freelance Indexer

I have been indexing books for more than ten years, producing high quality indexes for a variety of clients and unfailingly meeting deadlines. Subjects indexed cover the arts and social sciences (see below) but most topics will be considered.

I also index journals and am currently providing indexing services to the International Bibliography of Social Sciences which covers, among other publications, Psychological Bulletin, British Journal of Developmental Psychology, Child Development, American Journal of Orthopsychiatry, Theory and Psychology, Media history, Critical studies in media communication and Work, Employment and Society.

Background and education:

  • degree in psychology from the University of Aberdeen
