Acta Zoologica is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters. It was established in 1920 as Acta Zoologica and obtained its current name in 2002. It is one of the world's leading zoological journals[1] and focuses on animal development, structure, and function, including physiological organization. It primarily publishes original research papers, but occasionally also publishes review articles.

Increasingly, it has concentrated on animal development, with emphasis on the functional, comparative, and phylogenetic aspects.[1] The editor-in-chief is Lennart Olsson (University of Jena).
