Objective: To describe the behavior of co-authorship in the scientific production of Camagüey registered in the databases of Web of Science (WoS) and Scopus in the period 2001-2013. Method: A bibliometric analysis was performed through the application of indicators such as co-authorship index, rank of authors and their relation with citations received, evolution of collaboration; the network analysis was used for the study and visualization of the collaboration. Results: The co-authorship index of scientific production in general is 4.85 and the rank of predominant authors is between 4 and 5 authors. The article with the greatest number of authors (30) is the one with the highest number of citations received in the two databases analyzed. Only 50 documents do not show collaboration because were signed by a single author, while intra-institutional collaboration is present in more than 200 documents. Conclusions: The patterns of collaboration show the predominance of intrainstitutional collaboration in the period. In the analysis of institutional collaboration, the University of Camagüey and the Manuel Ascunce Domenech Hospital stand out by establishing stronger collaborative links with other entities, both Cuban and foreign. The internationalization of scientific production was very low until 2005, as of 2006 it has a slight increase but continues below the national and intrainstitutional collaboration.
