Collaboration of peers is rather common in some scientific communities and is being facilitated with the advances in telecommunication and computer networking technologies. In this paper, we analyze the collaboration networks formed among Mexican computer science scholars, using social network analysis techniques. A series of measurements are performed to identify some patterns of collaboration both among individuals and among Mexican academic institutions. The data for our measurements was taken from two freely available sources: DBLP, a public digital library which indexes computer science related conferences and journals; and the census of Mexican scholars made by REMIDEC. In order to have an insight about the impact of publications, we used the CORE ranking for computer science conferences and journals. Our aim is to gain a better understanding of the working practices exhibited by the Mexican computer science community.
