The Conquiliologistas do Brasil was created in 1989, in São Paulo, Brazil. It is an association with the main goals of gathering people interested in mollusks and promoting awareness of and interest in these animals.
Almost a decade later, the Conquiliologistas saw the need for a dedicated peer-reviewed malacological journal in Brazil – a niche that by then was entirely empty. As such, they established Strombus in 1998. Its aim was to publish original research about the diverse molluscan fauna in Brazil, but its scope has greatly expanded since; the journal is now dedicated to all biogeographic regions of the planet.
Strombus acquired an electronic version in 2008. In 2019, following the trend of many other journals, it finally became an online-only publication.
Given the non-profit volunteer nature of the journal, it has had irregular publication dates. Below you can find the find the exact dates when each volume and issue was published.
