The American Society for Indexing , based in the USA has a well-organised website with useful information for editors and authors.

The Society is affiliated with ICRIS - the International Committee of Representatives of Indexing Societies , of which there are many.

ICRIS in turn is affiliated with The Indexer , the International Journal of Indexing.

This journal is devoted to archane but practically significant details, and one its authors has won an Ig Nobel Literature Prize for a study of the word "the" . I encourage Research Cooperative members to see the "the" article!

If anyone is interested in reading more, I have written about the event and the response to it at http://www.webindexing.com.au/ignobel-prize-for-literature-2007/. I'm a member of ANZSI, the Australian and New Zealand Society of Indexers (http://www.anzsi.org/). Cheers, Glenda
