Reflection algebras is a class of algebras associated with integrable models with boundaries. The coefficients of Sklyanin determinant generate the center of the reflection algebra. We give a combinatorial description of Sklyanin determinant suitable for explicit computations.

Key words: reflection equation; Sklyanin determinant.
