The Brazilian academic sector is experiencing a period of quantitativist stress. Teachers and researchers are individually evaluated by the metrics of their bibliographical production. Despite its importance, the collaboration inside the research groups, in research networks, is not subject to systematic review. Products are measured, but the processes that generate them remain unknown. This study, supported by CNPq, aimed to build markers for the evaluation of interactive processes work in research networks. We understand that a research network is established when a group collaborates with the intention of producing knowledge. The literature pointed out that although such interaction can be graphically represented there is still small number of papers on the topic of evaluation of research networks and collaboration or about evaluation of research partnerships. From the theory, we developed a methodology for analyzing the curricula of researchers employing software to build spreadsheets, count co-authorships, and analyze social networks. These techniques allowed the preparation of data spreadsheets on the researchers’ bibliographical production, graphs representing their networks and the construction of an evaluation protocol for collaborative research networks. The investigated subjects were CNPq 1A researchers leading research groups in the areas of Education, Production Engineering and Physics. The results identify 10 markers, qualitative and quantitative indicators for evaluating research processes on networks, which have been tested and validated in the context of application.
