Covid-19, Literature Review, Latin America


A documentary review was carried out on the production and publication of research papers related to the study of the Covid-19 variable and the results of the Literature Reviews from Latin American institutions. The bibliometric analysis proposed in this document was to know the main characteristics of the volume of publications registered in the Scopus database during 2019-2022, identifying 1,258 publications. The information provided by the said platform was organized employing tables and figures categorizing the information by Year of Publication, Country of Origin, Area of Knowledge and Type of Publication. Once these characteristics had been described, a qualitative analysis was used to refer to the position of different authors concerning the proposed subject matter. Among the main findings of this research, Brazil was the Latin American country with the largest number of records in Scopus, with a total of 679 publications referring to bibliographic analysis and literature reviews on the Covid-19 variable. The area of knowledge that made the greatest contribution to the variables under study was Medicine, with 776 published documents. The type of publication most used during the above period was reviews, accounting for 50% of the total scientific production.
