We are inviting academic editorial contributors to the Encyclopedia of
Social Networks, a new 2-volume reference to be published in 2011 by SAGE
This comprehensive work will be marketed and sold to college, public, and
academic libraries and includes some 400 articles, covering all aspects of
social networks from historical perspectives on social networks in ancient
times to social networks in the Renaissance to the social networks of war
We are now making assignments with a deadline of May 1, 2010.
Each article, ranging from 800 to 4,000 words, is signed by the
contributor. The General Editor for the encyclopedia is George Barnett,
Ph.D. University of California – Davis, who will review all the articles
for editorial content and academic consistency.
If you are interested in contributing to the encyclopedia, it can be a
notable publication addition to your CV/resume and broaden your publishing
credits. Payments for the articles are honoraria that range from a $50

are available to students of social network issues.
