General Experience

Accredited indexer with 21 years’ indexing experience, and a graduate in classics and law.

I specialize in indexing books, journals, law reports and loose-leaf publications in all areas of law and the related social sciences of government, politics, economics, and home economics.

I indexed the journal Family Law (Jordan Publishing) for over eleven years, and my indexing was commended by the judging panel of the British and Irish Association of Law Librarians (BIALL) when the journal won the Legal Journals Award in 2017.

All enquiries, from authors, editors, publishers or other organizations, are welcome.
