Who we are
Created in 1997 to serve as the publishing outlet for the University of Franche-Comté, PUFC takes its place within a long and prestigious tradition of academic publishing.
The University attaches great importance to the promotion of research and the dissemination of knowledge and has therefore created an invaluable institutional resource to publish the work of its academics and of scholars from the wider academic community.
PUFC play an important role in regional networks and the promotion of the heritage of the Franche-Comté region.
As an academic publisher, PUFC belongs to the Association Des Éditeurs de la Recherche et de l’Enseignement Supérieur (AEDRES) and to the Association of European University Press (AEUP).
PUFC publishes work that falls outside traditional subject areas (Arts and Humanities), in fields usually less well-represented in academic publishing (physics and mathematics, legal studies, finance and economy, sport and various other fields).
The Press aims to attract an academic readership (researchers, teachers, students) but also educated general readers keen to access serious scholarly research in a user-friendly form.
In line with our editorial policy, we publish in a variety of formats: paperback editions at a reasonable price, online and multi-media publishing.
