The study of the scientific collaboration networks is one of the traditional areas of interest in Network Analysis framework. The aim of the paper is to explore co-authorship networks, where researchers are connected according to the number of papers published together, in order to assess the attitude to collaborate and to identify peculiar styles of collaboration. Starting from the data base of the published papers in the period 1998-2006 produced by the members of the Department of Economics and Statistics at the University of Salerno, collaboration networks are described both by means of network measures (density, actors centrality and presence of cohesive groups) and exploratory multidimensional techniques.
