The aim of this study is to analyze the history of and academic production in gender studies in Colombia to understand aspects of its development and research dynamics. The empirical corpus of research is represented by the academic production in gender studies registered in the Scopus database. A total of 1328 articles were reviewed and analyzed. A socio-bibliometric analysis was carried out to determine consumption indicators, as well as content analysis to identify the lines of research in this field. Although the academic production in gender studies appeared in the mid-1970s, in the last five years this production has increased, showing an established and consolidated field, in which the visibility of educational institutions from the official sector stands out. These institutions thus leverage the development of research in this field in the country. Despite the long history of gender processes in Colombia, the dynamics of academic production in this field are a recent development.
