Geographic distribution of authors in The Indexer, 1988–2007
Abstract:Catherine Sassen reports on her study of the geographic location of authors contributing to volumes 16 through 25 of The Indexer. Although the majority of authors were from the United Kingdom, there was a steady increase in the participation of authors from other countries throughout the 20-year period. Authors from outside the United Kingdom made up 14.86 percent of all authors in 1988–91, and grew to 38.27 percent in 2004–07. Geographic diversity was found to be greater among authors of articles than among authors of editorials, letters, or reviews.

More about this publication?
- The Indexer is published by the Society of Indexers on behalf of all the indexing societies, seeks to cover the full range of subjects, from articles at the cutting edge of new techniques to contributions discussing in a practical way the new tools available to indexers at all points in the technical spectrum or exploring the history of indexing. Its extensive reviews section covers both printed and electronic material, including websites and hardware and software of interest to the indexer, while 'Indexes Reviewed' highlights some of the best (and worst) examples of indexing in action. And, in 'Around the World', it keeps readers up to date with what is going on across the international indexing community. First published in 1958 on a twice-yearly basis, it moved in 2008 to a quarterly publication.
