Hi, David,

This is great!

There is a website with some of these instruments listed, but it can be
a bit difficult to navigate. Plus, many of the common social network
instruments used by INSNA people are not referenced.  And, the actual
instruments are not listed.  So, thanks for this great community
service.

Here is the website, keyed to "N" (for network).  You'll also find
instruments under networks, social networks, and some other terms.

best wishes,
Michael

Web Project on Social Network Survey Protocols.

David Tindall and Todd Malinick in the Department of Anthropology and
Sociology at the University of British Columbia are developing a
website on survey instruments for collecting social network
data.  There has been quite a lot published on social network
measures, and methods of statistical analysis.  Further, various
social network data sets are publicly available.  However, there is a
relative dearth of information about social network survey
instruments that is publically available to researchers and
students.  We are compiling social network survey instruments to be
posted on a publically accessible website, to be used as a resource
for researchers and students.

Please send us your questionnaires and/or interview schedules
(preferably in MS Word format,  Wordperfect, or PDF format), along
with a brief description of what the pertinent items measure.  Please
provide any references to publications that were produced from
research associated with your instrument.  Please provide your name,
contact information, and institutional affiliation.  You will be
fully cited on the webpage.  Your participation will be greatly
appreciated, and will be a valuable contribution to social network
researchers and students.

Please send these items and/or inquire for further information to:
