The spectra of the skew-adjacency matrices of a graph are considered as a possible way to distinguish adjacency cospectral graphs. This leads to the following topics: graphs whose skew-adjacency matrices are all cospectral; relations between the matchings polynomial of a graph and the characteristic polynomials of its adjacency and skew-adjacency matrices; skew-spectral radii and an analogue of the Perron–Frobenius theorem; and, the number of skew-adjacency matrices of a graph with distinct spectra.
