We obtain an explicit polynomial whose simple positive real roots provide the limit cycles which bifurcate from the periodic orbits of a family of cubic polynomial differential centers when it is perturbed inside the class of all cubic polynomial differential systems. The family considered is the unique family of weight-homogeneous polynomial differential systems of weight-degree 2 with a center. The computations has been done with the help of the algebraic manipulator Mathematica.
