Computers & Industrial Engineering is a leading international journal in the field of industrial engineering that published its first issue in 1976. In 2016, the journal has celebrated the 40th anniversary. Motivated by this event, the aim of this study is to develop a bibliometric overview of the publications of the journal between 1976 and 2015. The objective is to identify the leading trends that are occurring in the journal in terms of productivity and influence of topics, authors, universities and countries. For doing so, the work uses the Web of Science Core Collection database to analyse the bibliometric data. The results show the strong position of the USA in the journal although China and other Asian countries are becoming very significant.
