The Esteve Foundation Notebooks may include either a series of articles published in a scientific journal which –with the copyright owner’s permission– are intended to be diffused elsewhere or, for example, the content of a meeting not directly organized by the Foundation that otherwise might find difficulties in being published. These booklets also gather the content of special meetings sponsored by the Foundation which do not correspond to the round table format. Because of the origin of their content, notebooks are published in the original language.

The Esteve Foundation Notebooks are distributed free of charge to university libraries and research institutions throughout Spain. You can order a hard copy of the publication by clicking on Request publication (subject to availability). For easy access to the content in PDF you must register before at the top menu.
