The SES fosters cooperation among both professional and amateur entomologists and promotes the scientific study of indigenous insects.
Since 2017, the journal of the SES is Alpine Entomology (online and open access).
Back issues of Alpine Entomology and its predecessor journal are available via e-periodica:
Journal of the Swiss Entomological Society 1862 – 2016
Alpine Entomology 2017 – ff.
In collaboration with the ETH Library and thanks to the generous support of SCNAT, the SES is also currently digitising the volumes of various Swiss entomological journals via e-periodica.
