To quantitatively analyze the current state of entomological research in China based on published literature from Chinese authors indexed in both the Science Citation Index (SCI) and the Chinese Science Citation Database (CSCD). Bibliometric methods were used to analyze entomological articles by Chinese researchers in the SCI and CSCD between 2011 and 2016. A total of 6 589 SCI articles that had been cited 40 649 times were published in 1,461 journals by authors from 2 899 Chinese institutions. These articles mainly focused on the biochemistry, molecular biology, insecticides, the physiology of insecticide resistance, phylogeny, taxonomy, development, physiology, and the biological control of insect pests. A total of 6 407 CSCD articles that had been cited 7 641 times were published in 282 journals by authors from Chinese 2,833 institutions. These articles mainly focused on taxonomy, biochemistry, molecular biology, physiological ecology, population biology, biological control, insects that provide economic resources, natural enemies of insect pests, ultrastructure, biodiversity and insect communities. [Conclusion] A core group of entomological authors has developed in China that has established extensive cooperation with institutions and researchers worldwide. The quantities and citation frequency of Chinese authors in the SCI literature has increased rapidly. The citation frequency of CSCD literature has also increased rapidly, however, the number of CSCD papers has slightly decreased. Researchers who have played a major role in promoting the development of entomology in China are predominantly concentrated in the Institute of Plant Protection, The Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences and The Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Zoology.
