The International Journal of Intelligent Systems was created on 1986. Today, the journal has become thirty years old. In order to celebrate this anniversary, this study develops a bibliometric review of all the papers published in the journal between 1986 and 2015. The results are mainly based on the Web of Science Core Collection that classifies the bibliographic material by using several indicators including the total number of publications and citations, the h-index, the cites per paper and the citing articles. Moreover, the work also uses the VOS viewer software for visualizing the main results through bibliographic coupling and co-citation. The results show a general overview of the leading trends that have influenced the journal in terms of highly cited papers, authors, journals, universities and countries.
