"Pacific Science" is an international, multidisciplinary, academic journal devoted to the biological and physical sciences of the Pacific basin, focusing especially on biogeography, ecology, evolution, geology and volcanology, oceanography, palaeontology, and systematics. It has been published by the University of Hawaiokinai Press since 1947, and also serves as the official journal of the Pacific Science Association.

Volume 1 lists A. Grove Day as the editor in chief of a general editorial board for the University of Hawaii, where the editorship has remained. Leonard D. Tuthill of the Dept. of Zoology and Entomology served as editor of vols. 2-7 (1948-53); William A. Gosline of the Dept. of Zoology edited vols. 8-10 (1954-56) and vols. 22-25 (1968-71); and O. A. Bushnell of the Dept. of Microbiology edited vols. 11-21 (1957-67). The longest-serving editor was E. Alison Kay of the Dept. of General Science, then the Dept. of Zoology (from 1982), who edited vols. 26-54 (1972-2000), stepping down only after she retired. Gerald D. Carr of the Dept. of Botany edited vols. 55-58 (2001-04) and was succeeded by his departmental colleague, Curtis C. Daehler, from vol. 59 (2005).

The journal appears quarterly in January, April, July, and October. Its first electronic edition appeared in 2001 on Project MUSE, which continues to host archives of vols. 55 (2001) through 61 (2007). The most current electronic edition is available on BioOne, which also hosts archives going back to vol. 59 (2005).
