由於獨立出版名詞於近年內始逐漸被關注及討論，但是對於獨立出版名詞的定義多以西方為主，在台灣的討論並不多，因此筆者希望深入進行研究，以明確獨立出版的定義，並挑選幾間新一代的獨立出版社做為研究對象，為其建構生存模式，作為獨立出版研究者及從業人員和相關執政單位的參考。 Abstract: Taiwan publishers show characteristics of low capital threshold and unfixed costs. Because of this, the publishing industry has flourished here. However, in this highly competitive publishing environment, there is a group of minority publishers that do not belong to any type of publishing. They have few employees, small circulation, produce quality products, and appeal to non-profit purposes. They pursue their own personal ideals. These independent publishers and the realm that they have created within the Taiwanese publishing world is the object of my thesis. ‘Independent publishing’ has been discussed and a matter of concern in recent years, but the definition of ‘independent publishing’ is Western-oriented, and has not spurred much discussion in Taiwan, so I have conducted in-depth research, to clarify the definition of ‘independent publishing’. I have selected some publishers who fall under this category as the object of this thesis for constructing their mode of existence and as a reference for independent publishers, researchers, practitioners, and related governing units.
