The countries with the highest participation were Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Chile and Peru. Publications included 281 productions exclusively Latin American and 247 publications with the participation of one or more countries from other continents. The three areas that showed the largest number of publications were Psychological Disorders and Physical Health; Mental Health: Treatment and Prevention, and Physiological Psychology and Neuroscience. 157 journals published only one article while 95 published two or more items. The main journal has published 62 papers in cooperation. 459 articles indicated the methodology employed, and 435 were empirical studies and 24 were literature reviewsor meta-analyzes. The data are analyzed and discussed in view of possible ways to expand cooperation and attempted to quantify the cooperation between researchers.
