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.

For 2023, we are excited to have an Ocean Reflection paper by Robert A. Glazer, titled “The Road to Here: A Journey in Pursuit of Scientific Insight.” Bob recently retired from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) after 35 years, where his research focused on queen conch biology, ecology, aquaculture, and population restoration. While a Research Scientist at FWC, Bob has also been integral to south Florida’s climate change planning activities. Bob is currently Executive Director of the Gulf and Caribbean Fisheries Institute and has provided his excellent management and leadership skills to that non-profit organization, expanding its scope and status throughout the Gulf and Caribbean arena.
