The aim was to identify the intellectual structure of the scientific production on COVID-19 in the area of Public, Environmental and Occupational Health. Author bibliographic-coupling analysis and author cocitation analysis were used from the scientific production in Web of Science Core Collection in the period December 2019 to August 2020. The units of analysis were the citing authors and cited authors. A total of 1065 records were retrieved under the established search criteria. The Author bibliographic-coupling analysis identified 12 clusters representing 106 major active authors who investigated the pandemic from different perspectives forming diverse research fronts. The author cocitation analysis obtained 96 most influential cited authors represented in five clusters. The WHO and CDC-USA were identified as very influential references, as well as authors from the People's Republic of China. In conclusion, it was possible to identify the intellectual structure of scientific production on COVID-19 in the area of Public, Environmental and Occupational Health with the use of bibliometric methods of author bibliographic-coupling and author cocitation analysis.
