Hybrid publishing is an emerging model that combines different aspects of traditional publishing and self-publishing. According to the Independent Book Publishers Association, hybrid publishers must:

  1. Define a mission and vision for its publishing program.
  2. Vet submissions.
  3. Publish under its own imprint(s) and ISBNs.
  4. Publish to industry standards.
  5. Ensure editorial, design, and production quality. 
  6. Pursue and manage a range of publishing rights. 
  7. Provide distribution services. 
  8. Demonstrate respectable sales. 
  9. Pay authors a higher-than-standard royalty.
