Professional Indexer, Indexing Consultant, and Abstractor
Having in the indexing business for more than 6 years, Chandan brings his broad science and technical background in writing comprehensive and user-friendly book indexes on a wide range of subject (but not limited to) Science, Medical Sciences, Biology, Engineering & technology.
Over the last 6 years, we has indexed a vast number of academic, technical, trade, STM, and scholarly books on various subjects. I have indexed books, encyclopaedias, and journals published by leading publishers including Springer, Elsevier, Taylor & Francis Group, Syngress Publishing, Academic Press, Blackwell, Grey House, Humana-Press, OUP, Random House, Informa Healthcare, Wiley, LWW, Wolters & Koulers, and Egerton Press.
Software: We use Cindex1.5, Cindex 2.0, MS Word, WordEmbed, and InDesign for formatting the index. The process of creating “back-of-the-book indexes” is a form of writing. It is a mixture of analysis, judgment, and selection. I can index any document in any format.
Subject Specialty: We create indexes for a broad range of subjects including (but not limited to): Pure Sciences, Applied Sciences, Medical Sciences, Engineering & Technology, Humanities, and Social Sciences
