This paper reports on a study which uses techniques from social network analysis to explore patterns of research collaboration within the mathematics education research field, focusing on English language publications. The results suggest that the perceived theoretical or methodological fragmentation in mathematics education does not translate in a straightforward way into a fragmentation between researchers. This result is used to argue for a method for connecting research practices complementary to some of those discussed in previous papers in the CERME working group. Namely, that existing collaborations could be used to promote increased theoretical or methodological coherence across the research field when combined with the strategies already developed by the group.
