It was founded in 1998 by Neil Sloane.[1] Sloane had previously published two books on integer sequences, and in 1996 he founded the On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences (OEIS). Needing an outlet for research papers concerning the sequences he was collecting in OEIS, he founded the journal.[2][3] Since 2002 the journal has been hosted by the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo, with Waterloo professor Jeffrey Shallit as its editor-in-chief. There are no page charges for authors, and all papers are free to all readers. The journal publishes approximately 50–75 papers annually.[1]

In most years from 1999 to 2014, SCImago Journal Rank has ranked the Journal of Integer Sequences as a third-quartile journal in discrete mathematics and combinatorics.[4] It is indexed by Mathematical Reviews[5] and Zentralblatt MATH.[6]
