In the science communication process, expressions of gratitude for contributions given and received by peers can reveal scientific recognition to those who somehow contributed to a certain research and to advance knowledge in a specific area. In this context, the object of study of this article is the acknowledgments and academic obituaries published in scientific journals, with the aim of analyzing the presence of the invisible college and the scientific collaboration of Derek de Solla Price in these publications. The adopted methodology combined bibliometric and content analysis. The data source was Google Scholar and the research corpus consisted of articles (n = 46) containing acknowledgments and academic obituaries (n = 26) to Price. The following variables were analyzed: authors and authors, time evolution of articles, titles of journals and areas of knowledge of acknowledgments and academic obituaries. The results revealed that Price's invisible college and scientific collaboration network were composed of authors from the fields of scientometry, sociology of science and history of science and technology.
