About Indexing

A good index provides users with specific information about where topics are discussed in a text, as well as the context of that discussion. A good index helps users find information by providing multiple entry points and cross-references to related topics.

There are currently no software programs that provide useful indexes; a good index takes a human brain looking at and analyzing the text.

ContextualAnalysis offers the following indexing services.
