By analyzing isothermal magnetization curves under magnetic field cycling, the reversibility of the magnetostructural transition was investigated in Ni–Mn–In–Co in form of bulk sample and melt-spun ribbons. The hysteresis of thermally/magnetically induced martensitic transformation plays an important role in the reversibility of the magnetostructural transition. In ribbons with a large hysteresis of 18 K, residual field-induced austenite is present after removing the magnetic field, while, in the bulk sample, the magnetostructural transition is reversible at moderate temperatures due to a relatively smaller hysteresis of 8 K. Additionally, the magnetocaloric effect strongly depends on the sample history due to the occurrence of the irreversible magnetostructural transition, especially for the ribbons.
