Who can be an IPC member?

IPC defines an “independent publisher” for purposes of membership in IPC as a publisher of books, with no more than 60 employees on the one hand, and has a minimum of 10 books in print by not less than three authors on the other. Fully owned imprints at major houses would not qualify.
