Abstract: The current importance of tourism in Latin American countries highlights the need to review tourism research in this region. This article analyzes the contributions made by researchers affiliated to Latin American institutions in academic journals specialized in tourism and published in Latin America. Seven main journals published in Portuguese and Spanish over the last 13 years (2006–2018) are analysed. The analysis identifies institutions and authors that have made substantial efforts in research and dissemination in tourism in journals from the region. The article presents not only a ranking of institutions and authors, but also the geographical scope of their research, average number of co-authors per article, and a temporal evolution of their publications in tourism research. Finally, conclusions and recommendations are made regarding tourism research in Latin American journals.
