TheInternational Journal of Positive Behavioural Support (IJPBS) reached its 10th anniversary in 2021. Previous reviews have examined several variables that illuminated trends, biases and gaps in behaviour analytic journals and it was considered that a similar review of IJPBS would be equally valuable. This review aimed to determine the general status of IJPBS articles by coding (empirical and non-empirical) articles published between 2011 and 2020. The data indicated a high level of collaboration between practitioners and academics with an expanding range of authors over time. There was a strong focus on service delivery in non-empirical studies. Most intervention research articles concerned adult participants with severe intellectual disabilities and behaviours that challenge. Some reported features of interventions and outcome measures indicated key components of positive behavioural support (PBS), consistent with the Gore et al., (2013) UK definition. However, some components of this definition were less evident and may require better representation in future research.
