Abstract
Second of 2 articles reporting the results of a 1995 questionnaire survey of UK indexers and editors, focusing on work practices, relations between editors and indexers, editors' and editors' expectations, and the value placed on various characteristics of indexers and indexing. Data from 146 indexers and 123 editors was analysed on the following topics: complexity of the index and satisfaction with the index produced; instruction given to indexers; problems with the index; editors' judgement of the acceptability of the index; why the index was remembered; and whether editors would use the indexers again. While a high level of satisfaction with the indexes produced on the part of both editors and indexers was reported, results would seem to indicate that sending written instructions to indexers before the proofs are sent gives the lowest percentage of problems with the finished index. Suggests taht editors should consistently tell indexers of any problems to enable indexers to correct what goes wrong
