Field & Laboratory (Volumes 1-27, 1932-1959) contains papers published by faculty, students, and alumni from SMU’s Science Division. The articles cover many scientific areas, including biology, chemistry, physics, meteorology, earth sciences, and the history of science. One special purpose of the journal was to “give wider publicity to scientific studies originating in, and dealing with, the Southwest.”
The Fondren Science Series began publication in 1949 with Volume 1, Number 1, and ran in parallel with the Field & Laboratory series and finally alongside the Journal of the Graduate Research Center. Dr. Ellis Shuler, a founding professor at SMU and Dean of the Graduate School, organized the first two issues. He solicited the first article and wrote Part II of the first issue which was published in 1950. This series coincided with the construction of the Fondren Science Building, which opened in 1950, and was then the largest building on campus and dedicated to the natural sciences. Unlike Field & Laboratory, Fondren Science Series published several much longer articles, but on an irregular schedule. Most of the series papers related to the Geological Sciences and paleontology. The exception was the final issue, Volume 11, the book About Bats, published in 1970.

ISSN 0070-265XThe Journal of the Graduate Research Center began publication in 1960 in conjunction with the formation of the Graduate Research Center, Inc (GRC). An older publication series, Field & Laboratory, was incorporated into the Journal of the Graduate Research Center, which maintained the volume numbering scheme from its predecessor. Most articles were authored by SMU faculty, some derived from thesis papers, and researchers from outside of SMU also contributed. The focus of the new journal was much broader across the sciences and humanities than the earlier journal. Topics ranged from biology, mathematics, statistics, physics, and geology to business and economics, geography, anthropology, and history.
