flexible & affordable learning solutions™

Our History

bluedoor is a privately owned, science-based publisher in the post-secondary market. Our college publishing group focuses on lab support in both print and digital formats in biology, chemistry, microbiology, anatomy & physiology, geology, physics, and astronomy. Our career publishing group focuses on the allied health and veterinary tech market.

Formed in 2005, bluedoor is headquartered in Minneapolis, MN. We are fortunate to have authors that have been with us since the beginning while we continue to attract new authors across the country.

Our Mission

Our focus is to provide flexible and affordable learning solutions. We accomplish this by listening to the education market and the educators themselves. We don't believe in one-size-fits all, and we understand the unique needs that different educational institutions may have. This is the reason we provide custom and customizable solutions for our authors and educators across the country.
