We are looking for social justice-oriented editors with 1+ years professional experience indexing academic books in the following interdisciplinary academic fields: cultural studies, queer studies, film/media studies, transgender studies, women’s studies, ethnic studies, performance/dance studies, communication studies, disability studies, and related fields (see our portfolio for the types of projects we work on).
Ideas on Fire indexes are fundamentally interdisciplinary and thorough. Their goal is to allow diverse groups of readers to navigate the book in question and build on it to create their own scholarship.
Additionally, as a social justice-oriented company we know that the academic citations matter and are inherently political—thus our indexes highlight the full range of scholars, concepts, and histories cited in each book.
This is an independent contractor position and you can work remotely from wherever you are. IoF is a fully remote company with team members located across North America.
CINDEX or SKY (or similar), Microsoft Word 2010 or later, Adobe Reader or Apple Preview, Slack, Asana, Google Drive.
Pay is per project and based on indexable page count and turn-around time. You’ll know the full payment amount (as well as turn-around, indexable page count, subject area, manuscript type, and other logistics) before you decide whether or not to take on a project.
