Rates

For back-of the-book indexes, payment is typically on a per-page rate in the range of $2.75 - $5.50 per page. Complexity of subject matters is a primary consideration in determining the rate. Indexes for trade books, professional books and higher education (college) textbooks typically fall into the range of $3.00 - $4.00/page. Indexes for academic or scholarly books are typically $4.00 - $5.50/page, whereas children's reference and K-12 textbook indexes are usually only $2.75 - $3.25/page. Density of text per page is also taken into consideration in determining the exact rate.
