Manuscript Preparation

Q. How does one go about preparing an index? Any web page I can go to?

A. I typed “preparing an index Chicago” (without the quotation marks) into Google and found many sites that offer guidelines. Here are a couple: (Penn State University Press, “For Authors: Index Preparation”) (University of Nebraska Press, “Publishing with the Press: Preparing Your Index”)

And of course CMOS 16, chapter 16, tells you all you need to know and more.
