Les Presses Universitaires du Septentrion publish high-level academic works. They do not publish PhD thesis per say (this is the prerogative, in social and human sciences fields, of l'Atelier national de reproduction des thèses or Anrt, cf. http://www.diffusiontheses.fr/). However, les Presses Universitaires du Septentrion do publish works derived from PhD thesis, which have been submitted to rewritings for the purpose of a wider audience and have been reduced, in terms of signs, to fit usual editorial norms (no more than 650 000 signs for our "regard sociologique" or "espaces politiques" series for instance, no more than 900 000 signs as a rule). The number of signs (including footnotes and spaces) can be checked by clicking on menu > tools> statistics.

Les PU du Septentrion also publish scientific symposium proceedings, as long as they are edited by one or several editorial director(s) whose authority can guarantee the quality of individual contributions and their thematic coherence as a whole. The style of the text should be that of a written work, not an oral speech.

Last but not least, les PU du Septentrion are responsible for the publication of the « Savoirs mieux » series, which gathers short-format works taking stock of contemporary, live and debate-prompting issues in our society.

Les PU du Septentrion's thematic coverage is defined by its editorial boards: social and human sciences, literature, languages and arts (click here to see our editorial boards' page).
