Introduction: We analyse the collaboration and co-citation networks at the international level in scientific articles about violence against women. The aim is to identify who are writing about this subject, if they are women and/or men, who the most influential authors are and which institutions they belong to, and finally which authors are cited most frequently. Method: As a source of information we have consulted the Web of Science database, from which we recovered and analysed a total of 8,448 articles. Analysis: We analysed a simple of 5,219 authors. For the social network analysis and the visualization of centrality measures, collaboration and co-citation we used the software programme Pajek. The collaboration density maps were visualised using VOSViewer. Results: A total of 8,448 publications were analysed, showcasing the authors with a higher collaboration and co-citation centrality as well as their gender. We also present most influential authors, their collaboration networks and the institutions to which they are affiliated. Conclusions: The results show that research into violence against women is led by women; they publish more articles than men; they collaborate more closely; they hold positions that enable them to channel and disseminate flows of information and collaboration groups; and they have closer links to other authors.
