ANZSI provides an Accreditation scheme for its members who are back-of-book style indexers. An Accredited Indexer (formerly Registered Indexer) is one who has experience in indexing and has demonstrated competence against standard criteria for indexing in an index assessed by an ANZSI panel of experts.
The designation ‘Accredited Indexer’ may be used by indexers who have achieved Accredited status and who are current members of ANZSI. Accredited Indexers are entitled to use a special logo on their stationery, emails and websites. Their Accredited status is noted in our Indexers Available directory.
For authors, editors and publishers, Accreditation status indicates competence, measured against accepted indexing practice and agreed criteria.
For ANZSI members, Accreditation:
- recognises the quality of an indexer’s work, based on an example assessed by a panel of experienced indexers, and
- acknowledges the professionalism of an indexer through its requirement that only published indexes are reviewed. Having indexes published demonstrates the indexer’s ability to perform work under marketplace conditions, constraints and deadlines.
