The Field Museum of Natural History publishes Fieldiana in two series: Fieldiana Anthropology and Fieldiana Life and Earth Sciences. Both are peer-reviewed series that focus on mid-length monographs pertaining to the Museum’s collections and research. The two series are international in scope and pertain to subject matter in the fields of (a) Anthropology and (b) Life and Earth Sciences (Botany, Geology, and Zoology). Until December 2010, Fieldiana was published in four series: Anthropology, Botany, Geology, and Zoology. The change to Fieldiana Life and Earth Sciences will allow more regular publication.
