Objective. Perform a bibliometric analysis of the scientific production published in the Colombian Journal of Animal Science 2009-2018. Materials and methods. A descriptive-retrospective bibliometric study was carried out including the articles published in the last 10 years of the journal. Bibliometric indicators were selected as chronological distribution, scientific production, growth index, thematic categorization, author productivity, co-authorship and institutional cooperation. The scientometric indicators were calculated using the Harzing’s Publish or Perish 6 software, based on the Google Scholar. Results. 379 scientific articles were evaluated and an average of 16.48 articles / volume was published. The weighted productivity was 0.39 articles / author; the H-index was 13; the g-index was 18; the normalized hi was 8 and the annual h1 was 0.89. There was an increase in international contributions with predominance of original articles. Conclusions. Publishing a greater number of articles in English would be an opportunity to improve the visibility of the journal. The specific indicators of the journal were shown taking into account their visibility and productivity offered by the Publish or Perish program.
