Research on medical and veterinary entomology (MVE) is especially needed in the Caribbean islands, which are threatened by the burden of several arthropod species due to their tropical climate and environment. Identifying relevant MVE-related scientific activity in these countries and examining the characteristics of its outputs can aid in the analysis of trends, knowledge gaps and decision-making in vector-borne disease research management. Despite the importance of entomology research for human and public health, very few scientometric studies analyze the dynamics, advances, and contributions of this discipline, either globally or in the Caribbean region (Fontecha, et al., 2021). This study used bibliometric methods to understand how research in this discipline developed in the insular Caribbean countries during the first two decades of this century.
