I index and edit a variety of materials including trade, text, and scholarly books; journals; and database content. I hold a Ph.D. in Asian Religions (download my résumé). With over 20 years of experience, I offer reliable, professional indexing in a wide range of subject areas at reasonable rates. Years dedicated to interdisciplinary study has provided me with a depth of understanding of an array of subjects.
"Cynthia Col created an excellent index for my book, Music, Cosmology, and the Politics of Harmony in Early China (SUNY, 2012). I was most impressed by her responsiveness to my queries and concerns. No doubt, this was a difficult index to make, as it contained specialized references using the classical Chinese language as well as obscure phrases specific to music and the music theory of ancient China. Col presented me with a good first-run of the index that, naturally, still needed a few improvements and additions. She was extremely gracious in taking my response and, with very few directions from me, improving even more upon the index. Such an ability to work with authors and provide them with the final product they are looking for is invaluable, and Col's flexibility in the matter was what helped make it all work out so well."
