Identifying the most important individuals, institutions, universities, and other academic activities related to scientific production can help in collaborating and also exchanging information in various fields of science. Scientific cooperation plays an important role in promoting qualitative and quantitative scientific publications. One of the forms of collaboration is co-authorship in which two or more authors collaborate to create scientific work. Co-authorship relationships form collaboration networks that can be analyzed and visualized. The structure of networks like co-authorship can reflect the degree of internal collaboration and show the changes of information through time and other variables
