LAMBARRY VILCHIS, Fernando. Co-Authorship Network of Environmental Researchers and Their Impact in Mexico. RIDE. Rev. Iberoam. Investig. Desarro. Educ [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.19, e009.  Epub May 15, 2020. ISSN 2007-7467.

In Mexico, the most outstanding researchers are distinguished by the Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología. Although in the international literature researchers' co-authorship networks and the impact of their publications have been studied, in Mexico this type of studies is incipient, so the objective of this work is to explore the correlation between two centrality metrics and the h index of environmental researchers emeritus, levels one and three of the country. For this, the research method was based on the Pearson correlation of the grade centrality and closeness metrics with the h index. It is concluded that although environmental researchers publish in a collaborative way so they average high values of degree centrality, there is no correlation with the impact of their publications.

Keywords : impact of coauthorship networks; national research in environmental sciences; centrality metrics.
