Cabo dos Trabalhos is the electronic journal of the Centre for Social Studies’ Doctoral Programmes, in partnership with the University of Coimbra Faculty of Economics, Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Faculty of Law and the Institute for Interdisciplinary Research. It exclusively publishes: essays written by doctoral students of these faculties/institutes, conferences held by guest Professors, interviews, communications and other notes of interest.

The CES Collection seeks to mirror the plural and interdisciplinary research carried out at CES, as well as a wide range of themes focused on the social sciences, arts and humanities. After a decade-long partnership with Edições Almedina and almost 80 books published, the CES Collection migrated in 2022 to the Coimbra University Press, in a bid to publish open access content and an active policy of knowledge transfer.

Within the scope of the Observatory on Crisis and Alternatives, Cadernos do Observatório publications release the results of the ongoing research, and Barómetro das Crises focuses on the empirically sustained intervention in the public debate.

CES publishes various publications aiming at disseminating original and relevant academic studies, national and at internationally produced in various formats.
