IDENTIFYING KEY TERMS. UNDERSTANDING THE RELATIONSHIPS
Carla did an astounding job of identifying key terms and, crucially, understanding the relationships among them, in order to produce an index that is thorough but easy to use.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND. INDISPENSABLE
I highly recommend Carla DeSantis as an indexer. Her knowledge of Spanish and Latin were indispensable for my coedited volume "Health and Healing in the Early Modern Iberian World: A Gendered Perspective." In addition to her indexing skills, she caught many small copyediting errors.

1. Contact me with the details of your project and your time frame as soon as you receive the production schedule from your managing editor. The date that you will receive your first proof pages is the date that indexing can begin. It is important to book your indexing in advance in order to guarantee availability.
2. Once availability has been determined, I will ask you to send a copy of the manuscript in question via email so that I can assess the content and provide you with an accurate estimate for indexing.
3. Once we come to an agreement, I will book off the time for your index in my schedule. When you receive your first page proofs, you will send them to me in PDF format via email and indexing will commence.
4. When indexing is completed, I will email you the index in the preferred format (usually an MS Word document), which you can then review and pass on to the publisher.
