Topological indices have been used to modeling biological and chemical properties of molecules in quantitive structure property relationship studies and quantitive structure activity studies. All the degree based topological indices have been defined via classical degree concept. In this paper we define two novel degree concepts for a vertex of a simple connected graph: Van degree and reverse Van degree. And also we define Van and reverse Van indices of a simple connected graph by using the Van degrees concepts. We compute the Van and reverse Van indices for well-known simple connected graphs such as paths, stars, complete graphs and cycles.
