dear socnet members:
i have been a silent observer of the list for a while now, but research
opportunities have led me to finally post a question. i'm interested in
developing a network diagram for a consortium of non-profit organizations,
and i'm having a hard time finding descriptions of research methods. the
theory i think i have a handle on; i've read wasserman and faust, and
scott, and the rest of the basics. but the nuts and bolts of how to choose
your network elicitation question, etc., i'm having trouble locating. i
have read the marsden piece in the annual review of sociology as well, and
so have a basic idea of the methods, but i was looking for a little more
detail. any suggestions?
any help you might offer would be greatly appreciated, and i'll be more
than happy to digest the responses into one document and re-post, so that
others who have the same question might benefit.
