The Randić index was proposed by Randić in 1975 and has been widely stud- ied in different areas. We brie y review the Randić index and various Randić- type descriptors from 1975 to date, including higher-order Randić indices, zeroth order Randić indices, D-L-S generalization, sum-connectivity indices, geometric- arithmetic indices, harmonic index, atom-bond connectivity index, Balaban index, Randić matrix, Randić spectrum, Randić energy, etc. We also point out some important applications of the various Randić-Type indices.
