Gulf and Caribbean Research is a peer-reviewed, scientific journal published online by The University of Southern Mississippi and co-sponsored by the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory. The journal was originally founded in 1961 by Gordon Gunter as a publication of the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory, and was titled Gulf Research Reports; that title persisted through 1999. Starting in 2000, the name was changed to Gulf and Caribbean Research to better reflect the scope of manuscripts, and the journal was published in traditional hard-copy format through 2013. After a brief hiatus involving a change to an electronic only format, the journal began accepting articles for publication in 2015. The journal considers manuscripts which deal mainly with research or research issues pertinent to the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea.
