The Occasional Papers of the LSU Museum of Natural Science was founded in May 4, 1938 with the publication of the first issue. The journal was founded by George Lowery, Jr. just two years after he founded the LSU MNS. This journal was closely modeled after the Occasional Papers of the Museum of Zoology, University of Michigan series and continues to follow the tradition of that journal and other museum publications such as the American Museum Novitates.
All back issues were made available online starting in 2016.
