PIEDRA SALOMON, Yelina  and  PONJUAN DANTE, Gloria. Analysis of collaboration patterns in the Documentation and Scientific Information doctoral training program. Rev. cuba. inf. cienc. salud [online]. 2021, vol.32, n.1, e1797.  Epub Mar 01, 2021. ISSN 2307-2113.

The purpose of the study was to analyze the collaboration patterns in the Library Science and Scientific Documentation doctoral training program conducted jointly by the University of Havana and the University of Granada in the period 2007-2017. To achieve this end, a database of 396 documents was created on EndNote® x.9. Frequency lists were developed for the indicators analyzed, which were processed with the software Excel and Tableau Public 2020.3 to generate tables and charts. Bibexcel (Olle Persson, Umeå University, Sweden) was used to carry out overall frequency counts, generate matrices, and analyze co-authorship, co-tutorship and collaboration networks between institutions, with a view to processing them with UCINET 6.175. NetDraw 2.38 and VOSviewer 1.6.16 were used for their reticular representation. Collaboration was analyzed globally, by group and by document typology. An assessment was made of the relationships established for research development and thesis guidance. Analysis of papers included co-authorship networks and interinstitutional links, whereas the analysis of theses included the tutoring relationships established. A predominance was found of multiple authorship, mainly in scientific papers. Relatively important links were found in tutoring based on the establishment of relationships between the most productive authors in the program. On an institutional level, leadership by the University of Granada and the University of Havana was observed, being as they are the program coordinators. However, a wide range of national institutions was also found. Reference is made to the best represented participants and tutors.
