The Natal Museum publishes two SAPSE-listed journals: African Invertebrates and Southern African Humanities. The journals evolved from the original Natal Museum journal, Annals of the Natal Government Museum, which was first published in 1906. "Government" was dropped from the title after the Union of South Africa was established in 1910. The museum established the Natal Museum Journal of Humanities in 1989 to accommodate the increasing volume of publications by museum staff on archaeology, anthropology and history. Previously such articles had been published in the Annals. The Annals continued its uninterrupted run with natural science articles only. In 2001, the current names of the two museum journals were adopted. Volume numbers continued through the name changes.

Southern African Humanities is a medium for human science and heritage research of an archaeological, anthropological and historical nature. African Invertebrates carries articles on the taxonomy, systematics, biogeography, biology, ecology, conservation and palaeontology of African invertebrates.
