Abstract

Zhang Qiyu explores the role of term selection in producing an index which is truly fit for purpose, covering such matters as: ‘term selection’ and why it is important; identification of what is and is not ‘indexable’; multiple versus single indexes; structure and design of the index. He concludes with some golden rules.
