  • A network approach to understanding obesogenic environments for children
           in Pennsylvania

    • Abstract: Network methods have been applied to obesity to map connections between obesity-related genes, model biological feedback mechanisms and potential interventions, and to understand the spread of obesity through social networks. However, network methods have not been applied to understanding the obesogenic environment. Here, we created a network of 32 features

  • IkeNet: Email and Friendship Evolution

    • Abstract: Network evolution is an important problem for social scientists, management consultants, and social network scholars. Unfortunately, few empirical data sets exist that have sufficient data to fully explore evolution dynamics. Increasingly, more and more online data sets are used in lieu of offline, face-to-face data. The veracities of these findings

  • Creating a Conference Poster with High-Resolution Network Figures

    • Abstract: Creating a poster with high-resolution network images can be a challenging task. In this article, the process of exporting a network figure from a network analysis tool, importing it in a vector graphics tool, and preparing the poster for print is discussed. The steps include critical strategies for producing print-quality

  • The Boston Special Youth Project Affiliation Dataset

    • Abstract: The Boston Special Youth Project (SYP) Affiliation dataset is a large, bipartite network representing interactions among 166 gang members from seven gangs for nearly three years. The project was conducted from June 1954 to May 1957 and represents one of the most elaborate gang intervention programs ever conducted. The SYP

  • Strategic and Genetic Networking: Relational Endowment in a Local Cultural
           Offer

    • Abstract: The local theatrical offer is the result of all the theatre companies which perform shows in each other’s venues. Theatre hospitality is an inherently relational phenomenon, and besides big national and international tours, it is an important part of the local cultural landscape. Aiming at contributing to the literature on

  • Compositional Equivalence with Actor Attributes: Positional Analysis of
           the Florentine Families Network

    • Abstract: This paper extends Compositional Equivalence – which is a structural correspondence type intended for multiplex networks – by incorporating actor attributes in the modeling of the network relational structure as diagonal matrices. As an illustration, we construct the positional system of the Florentine families network with Business and Marriage ties

  • A Visual Data Collection Method: German Local Parties and Associations

    • Abstract: This research captures local networks of German political parties and welfare agencies in regards to poverty. The article explores whether there are differences in regards to homophily and brokerage between the two studied groups using a dataset of 33 egonetworks in two German cities. The computer assisted drawn networks were

  • Are We in Agreement' Benchmarking and Reliability Issues between
           Social Network Analytic Programs

    • Abstract: Reliability and validity are key concerns for any researcher. We investigate these concerns as they apply to social network analysis programs. Six well-used and trusted programs were compared on four common centrality measures (degree, betweenness, closeness, and eigenvector) under a variety of network topographies. We identify notable inconsistencies between programs

  • Networks and Institutionalization: A Neo-structural Approach

    • Abstract: This paper is the text prepared for the keynote address of the EUSN 2017 conference in Mainz, Germany. A short presentation of concepts reflects in part the foundations of neo-structural sociology (NSS) and its use of social and organisational network analyses, combined with other methodologies, to better understand the roles

  • Identifying Fragments in Networks for Structural Balance and Tracking the
           Levels of Balance Over Time

    • Abstract: This paper presents three items. The first is a brief outline of structural balance oriented towards tracking the amount of balance (or imbalance) over time in signed networks. Often, the distribution of specific substructures within broader networks has great interest value. The second item is a brief outline of a

  • Who Says Networks, Says Oligarchy' Oligarchies as “Rich
           Club” Networks

    • Abstract: Departing from Roberto Michels’s classic analysis of oligarchy, we provide a structural analysis of the concept based on social network analysis. We define oligarchy as a social network that exhibits three structural properties: tight interconnections among a small group of prominent actors who form an “inner circle”; the organization of

  • Social Exchange Networks: A Review of Experimental Studies

    • Abstract: This article surveys laboratory experiments on social exchange networks. The method of laboratory experiments is prominent in this field. The various theoretical perspectives informing the experiments are grouped into three approaches: the first, dominated by network-exchange theory, is mainly concerned with power and structure, the second discusses social-psychological approaches and

  • The South Carolina Network Exchange Datasets

    • Abstract: The article describes datasets from network exchange experiments collected at the University of South Carolina Laboratory for Sociological Research during 1989-1998. These datasets record time stamped negotiations between subjects as they seek to complete exchanges with one another.
