Thanks Seb,

I¹m testing this on my local copy of the data and there are, in fact, only
13 records pertaining to this keyword in the eprints__rindex table. Now,
I¹ve restarted the indexer however Bev says that this is something she
does on occasion yet the issue is still present.

Is it possible that the indexer is running into problems and, if so, is
there an error log we can interrogate to try and find out what the problem
is likely to be?
