Ars Docendi Press

Ars Docendi Press was founded in the summer of 1998, as a distinct part of the Pilot Centre for Informatic Technologies within the University of Bucharest; it became an independent publishing house operating in the same institution in 2006.

Ars Docendi Press has published over 500 books up to now, as well as multiple materials concerning various national and international scientific events and also a series of institutional guides for the University of Bucharest and some of the faculties within the latter (such as The Faculty of Political Sciences, The Faculty of Physics), edited under the UE approved standards for the ECTS documentation. The publishing house has also distinguished itself due to publication of several bibliophile volumes (such as Irina Nicolau, Le Pied chaussé and Haide, bre! Incursiune subiectivă în lumea aromânilor).

Ars Docendi Press offers word-processing and layout services and has its own printing house; the quality of the content of the edited works is reinforced by that of the print. The main directions of the editorial policy are:

  • supporting research through the prompt publication of scientific studies;
  • supporting the modernization of courses through the prompt publication of the new courses, at medium circulation and accessible prices;
  • encouraging cultural projects by publishing books with a limited target-audience;
  • supporting the academic programmes, student publications and the entrepreneurial concept of  university development.;
  • promoting the e-publishing concept;
  • the development of the international cooperation projects concerning the production of educational materials.
