SI Directory of Professional Indexers

To find an indexer by subject specialism, select a subject using the drop-down menu. Subjects are arranged alphabetically in categories (indicated by bold type): click on the plus sign to show the subjects in each group. You may find it helpful to look at the full list of subjects.

If you want to (optionally) restrict your search to indexers with a particular skill (e.g. embedded indexing) use the skills drop-down menu.

If you want to (optionally) restrict your search to indexers specialising in a particular type of publication (e.g. biographies), use the publication-type drop-down menu. All indexers will offer back-of-the-book indexing.

For some subjects, you will need to scroll down the page of search results to see all the indexers offering those subjects. Indexers’ profiles include relevant experience for each subject, publication type and skill that they offer, which will help you to find those whose experience most closely matches your requirements. The directory lists indexers who are Professional Members (MSocInd), Advanced Professional Members (MSocInd(Adv)) or Fellows (FSocInd) of the Society of Indexers with recognised indexing qualifications.

Please note that the search may take a few seconds as it searches for matches.  Results are output in randomised order to give our members an equal chance of being first on the list.

If you wish to see a complete listing of professional indexers in alphabetical order, you will find it here, note that this page is slower to load as it queries the full database.

You will also find the advice on commissioning an index and indexing fees useful.
