About the Journal


The Revista Colombiana de Entomología was created in the first congress of the Colombian Society of Entomology in 1973, as the official organ of scientific dissemination of the Society and was published in print from 1975 to 2017. Since 2018 it has been co-published with the Universidad del Valle (Cali, Colombia) and is completely electronic.


The RCdE's mission is to publish top quality scientific information resulting from research on insects and related groups from anywhere in the world. Since its foundation in 1975, it has been aimed primarily at researchers and professionals in entomology from universities and public and private research centers.


The RCdE's vision is to be one of the scientific publications with an entomological emphasis with the greatest impact, in order to contribute to scientific advancement in the study of insects and related groups in the world, especially for Latin America and the Caribbean.
