Studii si Comunicari“, the scientific journal of the "Ion Borcea" Natural Science Museum Complex appeared in 1968 at the initiative of the curators Dr. Iulian Antonescu, historian and Dr. Constantin Sova, naturalist, together with an enthusiastic group of young curators, including: Dr. Neculai Barabas, Dr. Catalin Rang, Dr. Victoria Barabas, Dr. Gheorghe Sava, Constantin Nechita and later Dr. Aristita Goaga (Dima) and Valeria Pavel. Over the time, the volume was printed under the directors of the institution: Dr. Constantin Sova, Dr. Neculai Barabas and Dr. Gabriela Gurau.

Between 1968 and 1980, the volume is published annually and biannually, divided in two sections, Plant Biology and Animal Biology. The volume includes papers presented at scientific meetings organized by the museum, such as: Habitat 76, Human Era, Science and Human Condition, Ecology and the Protection of Ecosystems and later Biology and Sustainable Development.

In the first part of its existence, the volume included works published in Romanian, with abstracts in French and German. Starting with number 21 (2006), the papers are published in English with a summary in Romanian.

For a period of 13 years, between 1980 and 1993, the volume ceased to emerge because of the heavy self-financing period experienced by museums at the time.

From the very beginning, the volume covered a wide range of themes in the field of natural sciences: geology, paleontology, botany and zoology, along with works dedicated to the field of museology. The papers have generally approached the study of Romanian natural capital and that of Moldavia region in particular.

Over the years in “Studii si Comunicari” have published famous personalities of Romanian biology, such as acad. Constantin Motas, acad. Mihai Bacescu, prof. dr. Corneliu Zolyneak, prof. dr. Traian Stefureac, prof. dr. Sergiu Carausu, prof. dr. Dumitru Mititelu, prof. dr. Sergiu Haimovici, dr. I. Fuhn, etc.
