There is a lot of literature on this subject. Some of the most recent inter-organizational network evolution studies are:

Forthcoming in the special issue of Industrial and Corporate Change in honor of James March (12 (3)), there is a paper "Where do Small Worlds Come From?" by Baum, Shipilov and Rowley. Its "working paper" version can be found at:

Obviously, recommendations from the authors should be taken with a grain of salt.

Subject:             longitudinal network data

Looking over the list of citations on network stability posted in February,
it seems that many of these works deal with theoretical models of network
evolution. Can anyone suggest empirical studies done with longitudinal
network data? (I'll collect responses and post them to the list.)

Thanks--
