La Universitat Jaume I manté des de la seua creació, l'any 1991, una intensa activitat editorial que s'ha traduït en el significatiu fons bibliogràfic que recullen aquestes pàgines, ampli, tant en el nombre de títols com en la diversitat temàtica que tracten. Per a la nostra institució, compromesa amb el desenvolupament social i econòmic del seu entorn, l'edició universitària constitueix una activitat essencial del nostre objectiu últim com a universitat: la generació i transmissió de coneixements. La ciència, en sentit ampli, requereix basar-se cada vegada més en instruments que permeten la difusió i, per tant, l'activitat editorial, en qualsevol de les seues manifestacions, continua sent la via més eficaç per afavorir que el coneixement s'expandisca i compartisca. http://www.uji.es/CA/publ/
