A retrospective study was conducted in which articles on anxiety in times of pandemic published and indexed in the Scopus database were examined, and whose authors are affiliated with Latin American institutions. Latin American scientific production on anxiety continues to increase. Brazil is the country that contributes the highest production, representing 44.67% of production, followed by Mexico, Argentina and Peru. Research on psychological variables and their relationship with COVID-19 in Latin America is still limited with respect to world production. It is necessary to increase the collaboration of international authors through the formation of professional and academic groups within and outside the region.
