Dear All,
Please find below a call for papers for the special issue of the Social
Networks journal entitled "Advances in 2-mode social network analysis".
If you are interested in submitting a paper for this special issue,
please submit an extended abstract by February 10th, 2010.
Best regards,
Filip Agneessens (VU University Amsterdam) and Martin Everett
(University of Manchester)

CALL FOR PAPERS - SOCIAL NETWORKS
=================================


SPECIAL ISSUE - "Advances in 2-mode social network analysis"

Special Issue Editors
=====================
Filip Agneessens (VU University Amsterdam)
Martin Everett (University of Manchester)

Focus of the Special Issue
==========================
In recent years there has been an increasing attention to 2-mode (and
multi-mode) social network analysis; i.e. social networks, where links
are only formed between two distinct groups (i.e. modes) of nodes. A
variety of 2-mode social network data have been studied including but
not limited to: interlocking directors sitting on multiple boards of
companies, participants attending several events, Senators cosponsoring
each other's bills, scientists or companies collaborating on projects,
or people being members of multiple groups.

In this Special Issue of Social Networks we wish to focus on
state-of-the-art papers on two-mode networks. Building on the increasing
interest in two-mode social network data as clearly apparent in recent
INSNA Sunbelt conferences and the 2009 Workshop and Conference on 2-mode
Social Network Analysis in Amsterdam, we aim to bring together some
groundbreaking papers that use 2-mode social network analysis into a
single issue of Social Networks.

Call for papers
===============
The papers considered should contribute to the 2-mode social network
literature by offering considerable substantive and/or methodological
innovations.
Methodological papers should either extend existing methods or develop
interesting new models and/or measures for the analysis of two-mode
social networks. Methodological innovations could include (but is not
restricted to):
-	New measures, or the extension of existing measures, which
capture important structural characteristics of two-mode network data
(e.g. measures of centrality, clustering,  ...) including measures that
include attributes (e.g. heterogeneity, ...)
-	Visualization techniques for 2-mode data
-	Methods to measure influence processes and resourceful positions
in 2-mode social networks (e.g. social capital)
-	Methods to distinguish groups (e.g. cohesive subgroups) and/or
to define structural similarity between actors (positional analysis
techniques and blockmodels)
-	Statistical methods to model local and/or global characteristics
of these networks (e.g. ERG (p*) models and other random baseline
models, ...)
-	Models to statistically test changes in 2-mode networks over
time
-	Ways to deal with sampling and boundary definitions in 2-mode
networks

Substantive papers should focus on applying social network methods to
2-mode social network data in order to provide answers to interesting
new research questions and/or in order to generate new perspectives on
existing questions. They should focus on increasing the understanding
about the emergence of local and/or global structures in 2-mode social
networks and/or on the effects that structure has on either or both
modes. In principle, questions can involve any 2-mode social network
data, including (among others):
-	interlocking directorates, 
-	cosponsorship-behavior among Senators, 
-	membership of formal and informal groups, 
-	participation to events and loyalty to institutions, 
-	the spread of diseases through (sexual) contacts modeled in
2-modes, 
-	shared collaboration on projects by organizations,
-	scientific co-authorship of articles

Submission requirements
=======================
We encourage authors to submit extended abstracts of 2 to 3 pages by
February 10th 2010. This should incorporate a clear description of the
objective of the paper, the specific questions that the author(s) want
to answer, how they plan to answer these questions, and should also
include relevant references to existing literature. Please submit this
to the special issue editors directly.
Authors invited to submit full papers will be notified by March 10th.
Complete papers should be submitted by the end of June. Final acceptance
of papers will be based on review by one of the Special Issue editors
and 2 peer reviewers. Revised papers are due by December 2010.
The format of the paper is equivalent to regular papers in Social
Networks. Visit the website for more information :
