About us

Quae was created in 2006 by four french research institutes : Cirad, Ifremer, Inra and Irstea. With more than 1 000 books, our publications aim at encouraging exchanges between scientists, passing on knowledge and know-how, decision analysis and public dialogue.

By developing thematics as diversified as agriculture and silviculture, environment, nutrition, sea, aquatic and aquacultural resources, life and earth sciences or humanities and social sciences, Quae has become a leading French scientific and technical publisher.

Quæ has been a digital publisher since 2008, with the implementation of an organized edition chain based on the XML format.
