The Iowa Academy of Science began publishing the Proceedings of the Iowa Academy of Sciences in 1887 and continued until 1987 when it became known as the peer-reviewed Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science. The change coincided with the 100th Annual Meeting of the Academy concluding a process that began in 1971 when the Proceedings became a quarterly periodical which included papers that had not been presented at the previous annual meeting.

The Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science (1988-present) was preceded by the Proceedings of the Iowa Academy of Science (1887-1987).

See the Aims and Scope for a complete coverage of the journal.
