The analysis of the organization of knowledge is an important tool for the management and evaluation of development agencies. Decisions are made in public politics, investment in research and innovation from the academic production of researchers and educational institutions in different areas of science. In many cases this organization is composed of a rigid structure that does not follow the development of their areas, this affects the progress of science, an example of organization is the taxonomy. With the analysis of the study of social network, we use the collaboration between researchers in a co-authors network can demonstrate new links among knowledge areas. This article describes a method which analyzes a co-authorship network, infers how areas are related and suggests new links and areas for a taxonomy. We applied our method in the IEEE taxonomy, and in our experiments we obtained good update suggestions to this taxonomy, according to the experts.
