Revista Colombiana de Entomología was created during the first congress of the Colombian Society of Entomology held in 1973, as the official means of scientific dissemination of the Society. The issues were published in print from 1975 to 2017. Since 2018, the journal has been co-published by the Colombian Society of Entomology (SOCOLEN) and Universidad del Valle (Univalle) and is available only in electronic format.


Revista Colombiana de Entomología (RCdE) is an open access journal, published online with a continuous periodicity (semiannual).
