CEPADUES is a publishing enterprise whose main activity is the production and distribution of scientific and technical works.

It was set up in 1967 by Jean-Claude Joly, a university lecturer in mathematics. Its publications have an educational purpose and are intended for schools and universities as well as the aeronautical, space and business sectors.

 

As he was a young university lecturer in mathematics, Jean-Claude Joly initiated a correspondence course for university students and named it CEPADUES, an acronym for Centre d’enseignement et de préparation for DUES (Preparation course for DUES), DUES being the University degree in scientific studies obtainable on completion of the initial two-year university course.

In the same year, after carrying out teaching and research tasks for five years, Jean-Claude Joly became a Professor in Higher Mathematics studies at a major aeronautical college, ENAC (the French National College of Civil Aviation). He held this position for twenty three years until 1990 and had the opportunity to teach a large number of civil aviation senior executives.

Concurrently, the CEPADUES correspondence course was developing and the May 1968 events gave an unexpected boost to this budding enterprise. During this period, CEPADUES promoted its services successfully.

In the following years, each university was allowed to design its own teaching programmes which made it necessary to customize the correspondence course.

In order to diversify the seasonal activity of this course, CEPADUES launched a publishing business based on high-level scientific manuals. In 1976, CEPADUES decided to concentrate on the publication of scientific, technical and aeronautical works and to discontinue the correspondence course.

When CEPADUES was set up, it also started to operate its own printing department to produce the course booklets. Printing in small numbers, which was an uncommon activity at that time, became its specialty. Meanwhile the aeronautical industry was looking for this type of service for its technical documentation. The aircraft manufacturer SNIAS (which later became AEROSPATIALE, then EADS and eventually AIRBUS) started to place orders on a regular basis for limited editions of various documents.

In 1972, Jean-Claude Joly set up a separate enterprise, based in Toulouse and named MESSAGES, which specialized in the processing and the reproduction of technical documentation. At present, MESSAGES has a work force of about one hundred.

The year 1990 was the beginning of a new era for CEPADUES when it was commissioned to publish the first manual for the preparation of the pilot licence.

Over the years CEPADUES has become a major reference for scientific or technical publications.
