Latin American studies on Social Sciences publications are not abundant; these disciplines deserve more attention in countries of the region by national scientific systems. This study analyzes the Peruvian and Colombian scientific production in Social Sciences published in Web of Science (2011-2020) with the objective of determining collaboration indicators and analyzing co-authorship networks between institutions and countries, in addition to identifying the intellectual structure through co-citation and bibliographic coupling of authors. A total of 2888 documents were analyzed from Peru and 12747 from Colombia, from which the pattern of collaborations in both countries was identified, with a tendency to constitute a greater number of international links than regional ones. Despite the wide difference in the number of documents, the collaboration networks follow similar dynamics in both countries, and bibliographic coupling and co-citation focused on classic authors of these disciplines and institutional authors is also common.
