The journal devoted to the systematics, faunistics and ecology of beetles has been published semi-annually since 2001 by the University of Daugavpils (Latvia) and the Warsaw University of Life Sciences (Poland). The basic version is printed, but the magazine's website also includes electronic PDF versions of currently published issues, to which access is unlimited and free of charge. All copyrights remain with the authors.

The Baltic Journal of Coleopterology publishes original articles on all aspects of beetles (Coleoptera), with particular emphasis on the faunistics, distribution, taxonomy, ecology, biology and conservation of beetles in the Baltic Sea catchment area and from other regions of the world.
