***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.sfu.ca/~insna/ ***** Hello all, I am a doctoral student in Marketing and a relative newbie to social networks analysis. I am interested in exploring the influence of network relationships on supplier choice in an industrial/retail purchasing context. Could anyone direct me toward published research (or working papers) using SNA that addresses interorganizational networks, or more specifically, network influence on industrial/retail purchasing? As a starting point, I am familiar with Granovetter (1985), Gulati (1995), Uzzi (1997), and Rindfleisch & Moorman (2001). I will plan to compile all citations that I receive for the SOCNET list. Thank you for your help. Matt Seevers -- Matthew T.
