The Hellenic Open University Press

Foreign Catalogue

Hellenic Open University Press (HOUP) was founded in 2018 by the Hellenic Open University (HOU) in order to publish and promote books and reviews of scientific and academic interest of the highest possible quality. Our publications, translations of acclaimed foreign books but also works of Greek academics and new researchers, are addressed to students, academics, researchers, and individuals interested in contemporary reflections of scientific and social interest.

With the validity and the high quality of works as non-negotiable criteria, our publications aim to promote and disseminate modern scientific research and teaching, and to publish books of general interest relating the fields of science and technology, humanities and social sciences to the Greek reading public.

We wish to rise up to the challenge of contemporary questions put to society by the historical, social and scientific developments, to promote original research through the publication of selected handbooks, to inform and supply the public debate regarding important scientific issues, inviting and actively engaging not only students and members of the academic community, but also a wider, studious reading public.

We firmly believe that the power of each book with the breadth of its appeal promotes not only the dissemination of knowledge, but also its transformation in the direction of the realization of human and social dynamics.
