***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hi all Like many, I belong to a number of email lists. These in turn are likely to be a small part of one or more very large network(s) of email lists, linked by overlapping memberships. I would be grateful if anyone could provide me with any online references to social network analysis of the network structure of email lists. This is of some practical concern. I moderate two email lists, relating to my own field of work. I would like to survey the members of those lists about their membership of other lists, and then develop a picture of how interconnected the membership is (in these terms). A two stage process (generate the list, then identify who uses which of the listed lists) I am hoping the exercise will help me (a) identify how central, or not, the email list is that I moderate, and (b) may point me to a section of the membership which is relatively unserved by other email lists, whose needs may then be worth investigating in more detail, (c) may point me to other email lists that are useful resources that I need to tap into But I do not want to re-invent the wheel, and I would like to benefit from the prior work and experience of others who have researched this area regards, rick davies -- Rick Davies (Dr) Monitoring and Evaluation Consultant Cambridge, United Kingdom Phone: 44 (0)1223 841367 Mobile: 44 (0) 7855766354 Fax(to email): 44 0780 1640239 Email: [log in to unmask] See Monitoring and Evaluation NEWS at http://www.mande.co.uk See Rick on the Road at http://www.mandenews.blogspot.com See Homepage at http://www.shimbir.demon.co.uk _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).
