 Social Media Port Archive

The Port of Tarragona’s Publications Service was founded in November 2004 with the aim of collecting and managing all the published work that had, until then, been carried out by the Port of Tarragona, as well as establishing the criteria to be pursued in the authority’s publications, focused on disseminating the Port and maritime heritage, and designing an image and an appropriate high-quality editorial line.

The Service of Publications organises jointly with the Port Archive the Prize of Research Port of Tarragona  that summons  every two years.

Since its inception, and in conjunction with the Port Archive, the Publications Service has organised the exchange of publications, in order to provide an outlet for the publications while at the same time adding others for the Archive’s Library.

​​ To publish in the Port


The Port of Tarragona’s various collections of publications are open to all those wishing to contribute works that deal with maritime or Port affairs in general, or with the coast of the province of Tarragona in particular. Novels or narratives are however excluded. The works presented therefore need to be completed, with their linguistic, historical and/or technical content corrected. This is an indispensable condition for evaluating them.



The works presented are submitted to an anonymous evaluation carried out by professionals from the Port or external ones, depending on the subject matter to be evaluated.

Intellectual property

In the case of all the work received, it will be considered that their authors are the original and exclusive holders of the economic and moral rights of the work. In the event of the partial use of outside works in creating the work, the corresponding authorisation must be enclosed.

The same will be true in the case of any images that may accompany the work. The author expressly releases the Tarragona Port Authority from any further liability for legal, regulatory or contractual infringement, obliging the author to redress all damages that might arise from the infringement of these rights or from others.

Publication of the work

Publication of the work implies that the Tarragona Port Authority, or any third parties authorised by it, exercises the rights of:

     Publication, editing, reproduction, adaptation, distribution and sale of the copies published, as well as making available free of charge to the general public by means of digital publication.

   This authorisation is non-exclusive, free, unlimited, perpetual and non-renewable in nature, and implies that the Tarragona Port Authority is released from payment or remuneration for exercising the aforementioned rights.
