Per indexable page @ $ 3.00 – $ 7.00.
        Per entry/per hour/per project rates available upon request.        

In order to arrive at a mutually acceptable rate, it will be necessary for me to review a representative sample of the material to be indexed. There are a number of factors that affect establishing a rate: type of material, page size and format, density of the material with regard to the number of index entries per page, the number of indexable illustrations, tables or maps, the intended audience, depth of indexing (subheadings), the need for multiple indexes (name, author, subject or taxonomy), time constraints and delivery options requiring special attention.

Additionally, index specifications, including the index style and delivery options (electronic file formats, email, floppy disk, CD and/or hard copies) need to be established as they are central to the physical construction and delivery of the finished index.

I have prepared a sample Project Cost Estimate Form that I use in preparing cost estimates. It can be viewed, copied or printed by clicking here.

A sample of the Indexing Agreement I like to use can be seen/copied here.
