Founded in 1987 and based in Louvain-la-Neuve, at the heart of the university city, Academia is a publishing house specialising in human sciences being at the top. Its catalogue now consists of more than 800 titles, aimed at a varied public : professionals, teachers, researchers, students and those passionate about learning.
In 2011, the publishers have been consolidated by the group Harmattan. New authors came to enrich the catalogue, and new collections were created. In the digital era, Academia has also reviewed its techniques of production and offers, from now, its titles in both paper and digital versions.
In this dynamo of development, les éditions Academia opened itself to literature by creating two collections : Littératures and Livres Libres. These collections welcome fictional texts of all styles (witness accounts, detective novels, fantasy…).
