ABSTRACT
The Society of Indexers (SI) was established in 1957, its journal, The Indexer, following in 1958. At first little more than the SI house journal or newsletter, it developed over the years into what it now proudly calls itself: 'The International Journal of Indexing', published on behalf of all the indexing societies. It has grown from the 28 pages of its first, bi-annual, issue to the 48 pages, quarterly, of today, and has moved from the cutting and pasting that comprised so much of the early editorial task to full online publication. Despite predictions from time to time that there was a limit to how much could be usefully written about indexing, the flow of good material has now continued unabated for some 50 years, always topical but always representative of its time. From the beginning, The Indexer has aspired to the very best contemporary journal practice. That remains the challenge for today.
