The publishing house
The publishing house was founded by a team of publishing and education professionals, with the essential aim of becoming a benchmark for quality publishing for all areas of the education sector. From the educational sector, he entered the publishing world of the humanities, social sciences and thought, combining essays and literary creation.
It currently has its own publishing team, with professional editors, designers and producers trained to maintain quality in publishing and to constantly adapt to the use of new technologies in both processes and finishes.
More than 2,000 bookshave been published in hard copy, and more than 1,000 ebooks, all of which are intended for permanent sale, bringing the current supply of living books in hard copy to more than 1,800 books.

OCTAEDRO DIGITAL BET
From the earliest times, paper editions have been produced and later in digital formats such as EPUB, PDF and HTML (for school books).
Many Octahedron books and programmes require additional viewing on the web and are available with free and restricted personal permissions, as appropriate.
Since 2017, Octaedro’s websites have been created and generated by its own staff, and it is the staff team that updates and manages them, according to the department.
With many universities around the world, Octaedro co-publishes books, being the publishing house the only one in charge of the edition and marketing of all the books. You can see many collaborations on the web, and many co-edited books.
We have agreements with various institutions and universities to publish books in Open Access, as an example of collaboration with the scientific and academic community. Se puede ver enhttps://octaedro.com/descarga-gratuita/
