    Indexing–Who should do it?

    by Sysadmin, Comments Off on Indexing–Who should do it?


    I am writing a book on Project Management. After I submitted the manuscript the publisher is telling me that, once the CRC pages are ready, I should prepare the index. If I am unable to prepare the index, the publisher will entrust the task to an indexer and deduct the amount from my royalty. But there was no mention about indexing in the MoA. When I asked the publisher about it, the reply I got was that it was the author’s responsibility to prepare the index and hence not specified in the contract. What should I do?

    Any help/suggestions will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance
