Hello-

I am embarking on a research project that attempts to identify social roles from peoples behavioral and relational patterns in online interaction.

I would very much appreciate your advice, and will be happy to post the resulting list back to the group and forward the related endnote library on to anyone who wants it.

I am looking for research on three related issues:

Research that tests the accuracy of different network methods for identifying social roles, especially work that compares different network methods (to each other) and to estimates of roles based on other data source-- self report, observation, demographic covariates.  (Wassermand and Faust is an obvious starting point for the first half, but beyond that?)

The problem of using precise methods to identify imprecise roles.  Given that network data may contain error, and perhaps more importantly-- that peoples embodiment of different roles may be incomplete or manifold--  How best can network measures of social roles balance accuracy with the risk of making overly fine distinctions?

Third-- is there research that describes exploratory visualization methods of local neighborhoods for the purpose of identifying role similarity within and across different networks?

To begin I performed a cited reference search on Boorman, White and Breiger 1976 AJS.   The results of that search are below.

Can you point me to further research that addresses the issues described above?

And, of the below, are there any that you recomend as especially relevant to the issues raised above?

Thank you very much,

Ted Welser
