Koleopterologische Rundschau (Coleopterological Review)

Editor: Dr. Manfred A. Jäch

Since the appearance of volume 60 (1990) Austria's only scientific journal with exclusively coleopterological contents - the Koleopterologische Rundschau (Coleopterological Review) - presents itself in a new layout.

This journal has been published continuously since 1912. In 1990 it was revitalized by the Zoologisch-Botanische Gesellschaft and the Wiener Coleopterologenverein (WCV) (Vienna Coleopterists Society), two equally traditional scientific societies. Eventually, it was possible to increase the journal's quality greatly.

The "Koleopterologische Rundschau" appears annually and contains approximately 300 pages of new contributions on taxonomy, phylogeny, zoogeography and faunistics of beetles. There are no geographic restrictions. Languages are English and German.

Manuscripts for "Koleopterologische Rundschau" are thoroughly peer-reviewed by members of the International Advisory Board and/or other anonymous experts.

The International Advisory Board currently includes the following members: R.B. Angus (Natural History Museum, London), R.G. Beutel (Phyletisches Museum, Jena), D.E. Bright (C.P. Gillette Museum of Arthropod Diversity, Colorado State University).

If you plan to publish some contributions at the Koleopterologische Rundschau (Coleopterological Review), please read the instruction for authors

Members of the WCV receive 30 reprints of their articles free and do not pay any page charges! 

All PDF-files from 1911 to 2021 are available for free at Koleopterologische Rundschau at ZOBODAT.

Interested parties can most favourably receive the journal as members of the WCV. Annual dues of EURO 40.- include membership in the society as well as subscription to the "Koleopterologische Rundschau". For non-members, single issues cost EURO 60.-

Back issues of Koleopterologische Rundschau are available from volume 60 (1990) and later for EURO 40.- (WCV members) or EURO 60.- (non members).
