The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing

Back-of-the-book indexing with the nested phrase indexing system (nephis)

The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (1988), 16, (2), 79–84.

Abstract

Nephis, Craven’s Nested Phrase Indexing System, transfers one more indexing procedure, the creation of individual index entries, to computer algorithm, permitting the human indexer to concentrate on the intellectual task of analyzing text and naming its important features. Experience at Rutgers University has shown that novice indexers can learn nephis quite quickly and can use it to produce acceptable indexes.
