Your publications are privileged sources of information for your college network colleagues and for researchers.

Promote your fields of interest while ensuring a wide dissemination of your research on college-level teaching, learning, college education research, or public and private college institutional development in Quebec.

Submit your work (articles, theses, research reports, etc.) to ÉDUQ, the open archive of the Quebec college network to increase consultation and citation of your publications.

Ascertain that the document you want to share isn’t already in the ÉDUQ archive. Then, carefully read the terms and conditions of the non-exclusive distribution licence and fill out the form below. As soon as your document is available, we will contact you and give you the permanent URL to access it. The submission of your document is subject to approval in accordance with the CDC Collection Development Policy.
