The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing

Foreign concepts: indexing and indexes on the Continent

The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (1995), 19, (3), 160–172.

Abstract

The British Standard was recently taken as the basis for the new International Standard for indexing, but unexpected cultural differences may still continue to produce surprisingly non-standard results. Examples of indexes from recent Continental European books show that they typically have multiple indexes in multiple volumes, long lists of unanalysed page references, and lack cross-referencing to related concepts.
