Scientific production is fundamental in architecture schools for developing professionals with research capabilities involved in generating knowledge for society. The objective of this research was to analyze the scientific production of Peruvian architecture schools in the Scopus and Web of Science (WoS) databases until 2020. A bibliometric study was conducted considering the 37 schools of architecture recognized by SUNEDU. As a result, 131 documents were found (79 in Scopus, 30 in WoS, and 22 in both databases). The first publication was in 2005, and in the last two years (2019–2020), more than half (78) of the historical total of documents have been produced. A total of 190 authors were registered; 120 are of Peruvian affiliation, and 70 have an international affiliation. Articles were the most published type of document (56.4% in Scopus and 86.5% in WoS) and were published in more than 49 international journals. About half of the total publications were in English. This research shows that only 18 architecture schools have published at least one paper in Scopus or WoS. It is concluded that scientific production in Peruvian architecture schools is low, recent, and heterogeneous according to the university’s type of administration (public or private) and location. It is necessary to implement strategies to promote scientific production from the undergraduate level and consider the research lines of the architecture schools in Peru.
