MANTILLA SALGADO, Jorge David. A bibliometric study on scientific production about COVID-19 in Ecuadorian institutions. Revista San Gregorio [online]. 2021, vol.1, n.45, pp.59-72. ISSN 2528-7907.

During 2020, the pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus has had considerable health-related impacts, as well as other economic, social, political, educational, and cultural effects. Due to their structural conditions, developing countries, such as Ecuador, are especially vulnerable to these circumstances. In this sense, the academy is one of the key agents in the responses that could and may be generated to cope with this crisis. This article presents a bibliometric review of the main trends within the scientific production generated by Ecuadorian authors about the covid-19 pandemic. The objective of the article is to present an overview of the main dynamics of Ecuadorian scientific production on this subject. For this purpose, we analyzed the academic documents indexed within the Scopus database in the period between January and October 2020, using the R package in R and VOSviewwe. The results show the development of an emerging corpus of literature, despite the complications caused by the pandemic. This literature is driven mainly by international cooperation. However, there are important gaps in studies on the social problems caused by the pandemic.
