Production and transmission of knowledge are especially important in intellectual activities like scientific researches. In this context, the main purpose of this study is to analyse the research network collaboration in economics community in Izmir. To the best of our knowledge, there is no study investigating this topic in the literature for Izmir. To fill this gap, firstly, covering the period of 2012:Q1 – 2017:Q3, a sociometric choices matrix is constructed, for the research collaboration network of economics community in Izmir. Moreover a social network graph is illustrated in order to analyze social and individual network densities. Results basically show that Izmir economics community exhibits local network properties based on geographical and cognitive distances.

Bilginin üretimi ve aktarılması özellikle bilimsel araştırmalar gibi entellektüel faaliyetlerde önemlidir. Bu bağlamda bu çalışmanın temel amacı, İzmir’deki iktisatçı topluluğu arasındaki araştırma ağı işbirliklerini  analiz etmektir. Literatürde bu konuda bir çalışma bildiğimiz kadarıyla yoktur. Bu boşluğu doldurmak için ilk olarak, 2012:Q1 – 2017:Q3 dönemini kapsayan ve İzmir’deki iktisatçıların araştırma ağı işbirliklerini gösteren bir sosyometrik tercihler matrisi oluşturulmuştur. Bununla beraber, toplumsal ve bireysel ağ yoğunluğunu anlatan bir sosyal ağ grafiği çizilmiştir. Sonuçlar İzmir’deki iktisatçılar arasında coğrafi ve bilişsel yakınlık temelinde yerel ağ özelliği olduğunu göstermektedir.
