***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Thanks so much to all the help I've had on this question.  I've learnt some very interesting things and continue to be amazed at how willing others are to pitch in when asked. 
 
Some ahah moments - the network(s) I've been exploring are relatively cohesive with few weakly connected members.  Which means, I think, that the node with even one or two connections to another node otherwise unconnected to the network, raises them to the top of the pack as far as betweenness centrality goes.  That seems to be what happened, which adds another story to this saga... :)
 
Thanks again!
Sandy

Hello everyone,

 

A quick email to announce the publication of the RSA’s report on the utility of social network analysis for community regeneration.

The Connected Communities' report argues for a new approach to community regeneration, based on an understanding of the importance of social networks, and the potential of SNA interventions in efforts to combat isolation and to support the development of resilient and empowered communities.

Based on an extensive research project undertaken in New Cross Gate in southeast London, and in Knowle West, Bristol, the report
combined SNA as diagnostic tool and analysis of community policy and practice in the UK to create an analytical framework based on notions of connectivity, contagion and reflexivity.

Our analysis has given us a preliminary understanding of New Cross Gate which will be used to shape SNA-based interventions in the community. Amongst other things the research highlighted that:

• A quarter of our respondents could not name anyone in their social network who they thought was a) good at bringing people together or b) could help them contact someone with influence, power or responsibility to change things locally.

 

• One in fifty of our respondents did not know anybody in their local area that supported them or helped them to make changes in any way.

 

• ‘Familiar strangers’ like postmen and dustmen appear to be under-utilised community resources; in our case study more people recognise and find value in their postman than their local councillor.

.

• Our geographic sense of what is central to a community is highly misleading, and community hubs, including pubs and sports clubs, are an important aspect of community resilience and empowerment.

 

 

thank you,

i suspect you will find that with rds most participants are not given an
incentive but rather paid a relatively small amount for their time, as well
as for the time it takes to locate and ask others if they are willing to participate, 
which includes an amount/amounts reflecting average transport costs perhaps.

Hi all,

I'm hoping to use respondent-driven sampling (RDS) for a network survey-based project.  However, I'm coming up against an IRB problem.  My institution does not allow any incentives to paid to respondents for helping researchers recruit participants.  For those who don't know much about RDS, the procedure uses a dual reward system: (1) a respondent is rewarded for taking the survey and (2) the respondent is also rewarded for successfully recruiting subsequent participants (successful meaning that the recruit completed the survey as well).

Does anyone have advice for working around this issue? One idea that a colleague of mine suggested was to build in a small follow-up questionnaire to administer to a respondent (post survey completion), perhaps a few questions about the nature of the relationship between the respondent and the people they recruited.  Then, the reward that was originally meant for successful recruitment could be justifiable given for participating in the follow-up survey.

I would appreciate any creative suggestions and/or advice based on past experiences in getting IRB approval for a study using RDS.  Thanks in advance.

Cheers,
Lindsay

a couple of other issues that you should consider:
1) Be careful how you define "completed survey". Respondents must be told

Dear list members,

 

Networks in scientific communities have been extensively studied. Co-author networks and co-citation networks are to my knowledge the main approaches used to identify such networks.

 

My question to you is, is there any literature which tried to map scientific networks based on a survey approach instead? (with questions such as: "who do you talk to" in [your scientific field, a conference, an academic organization, your university ...]

 

Any reference would be very helpful!

 

Best,

 

Clement.

Dear Clement,

 

We sent out extensive questionnaires to citers and analyzed the social network as different from the network of citations and coauthorships in:

 

(with Olga Amsterdamska), “Dimensions of Citation Analysis”, Science, Technology and Human Values 15 (1990) 305-335.

Dear Clement,

There are indeed few studies of scientific networks which do not use co-authorship or similar bibliometric relations. An exception is a survey by Crane, where she also asks about exchanges of preprints and other relations.

Dear list members,

 

Networks in scientific communities have been extensively studied. Co-author networks and co-citation networks are to my knowledge the main approaches used to identify such networks.

 

My question to you is, is there any literature which tried to map scientific networks based on a survey approach instead? (with questions such as: "who do you talk to" in [your scientific field, a conference, an academic organization, your university ...]

 

Any reference would be very helpful!

 

Best,

 

Clement.

Hi Lindsay,

I don't work on RDS, but several people in my department do, and one colleague (a fellow grad student) had the following advice (pasted below).

Hi all,

I'm hoping to use respondent-driven sampling (RDS) for a network survey-based project.  However, I'm coming up against an IRB problem.  My institution does not allow any incentives to paid to respondents for helping researchers recruit participants.  For those who don't know much about RDS, the procedure uses a dual reward system: (1) a respondent is rewarded for taking the survey and (2) the respondent is also rewarded for successfully recruiting subsequent participants (successful meaning that the recruit completed the survey as well).

Does anyone have advice for working around this issue? One idea that a colleague of mine suggested was to build in a small follow-up questionnaire to administer to a respondent (post survey completion), perhaps a few questions about the nature of the relationship between the respondent and the people they recruited.  Then, the reward that was originally meant for successful recruitment could be justifiable given for participating in the follow-up survey.

I would appreciate any creative suggestions and/or advice based on past experiences in getting IRB approval for a study using RDS.  Thanks in advance.

Cheers,
Lindsay

I would also be interested in any research that has been done on the 'contagion' of recovery among drug users in network terms. I am having difficulty finding such work, so would appreciate any references/ideas. I will, of course, summarise any replies into a reference list for this group. Many thanks in advance.

Drug User Networks Reference List:

 

A good foundational piece is by Weeks, et al on IV drug users in Hartford, CT:

Carl Latkin in the School of Public Health at John Hopkins has carried out several studies which focus on problematic drug use through the 'lens' of SNA. These include:

Douglas Heckathorn (Sociolology, Cornell University) has developed a method of sampling called respondent-driven sampling that is meant to be used with large social networks, particularly for hard-to-reach, hidden populations like drug users.

Subject: Drug user networks

Dear all
 
I am trying to find research that describes/models networks of drug users, both in terms of how they connect to and use with other drug users, and how they connect to various forms of 'recovery capital' (the social, institutional, community-based connections that facilitate and support recovery: for example, family/friends, treatment services, potential employers).
 
I would also be interested in any research that has been done on the 'contagion' of recovery among drug users in network terms.
 
I am having difficulty finding such work, so would appreciate any references/ideas.  I will, of course, summarise any replies into a reference list for this group.
 
Many thanks in advance.
 
Best wishes, Steve Broome

CALL FOR PAPERS - AAG 2011
 
Paper session: "Space and Social Networks"
Sponsored by the Political Geography Speciality Group
 
Association of American Geographers (AAG) Annual Meeting 2011
Seattle, USA, 12-16 April 2011
 
Organizers
Dimitris Christopoulos, University of the West of England, UK
Christophe Sohn and Olivier Walther, Centre for Population, Poverty and Public Policy Studies, Luxembourg
 
Concept and objectives
Until recently, geographers and social networks analysts followed parallel paths. The former documented how different kinds of nodes and edges were organized into physical networks while the latter studied the way social actors are related, rarely paying much attention to their spatiality. In the last decade however, social network analysis has gained significant attention from different scholars, who have progressively investigated how the location of actors in space, the spatial practices or imaginaries, and the geographic arrangements of networks are influencing social ties.
 
This session is an attempt to consider both networks and space by integrating social theories in geography and spatial network analysis. The main objective is to investigate how an actor's position in geographic space can be analysed simultaneously with their position in social networks.
 
In the session we wish to explore the following topics:
 
- Theories of spatiality in social networks
- Spatial proximity and homophily
- Governance networks and geography
- Crime and terrorist networks
- Innovation cluster topography and social networks
- Small worlds and regional economics
- Social movements and local embeddedness
- Intra & Inter-organisational networks
- Spatiality and relational space in workplace environments
- Social network and GIS mapping
 
Joining the session
Both conceptual and empirical papers are welcome. We look forward to receiving proposals that focus on different regions and contexts and make use of different approaches.  Interested participants should send an abstract of max 250 words to Dimitris Christopoulos ([log in to unmask]) and Christophe Sohn ([log in to unmask]) no later than 15th October 2010.
 
Contributors will have to register for the conference and submit their abstract the regular way through the AAG website (http://www.aag.org/cs/annualmeeting/register_to_attend), and should then send the registration code (PIN) they receive to us. Please note that you have to submit the abstract AND also pay, and then your PIN is activated. We will then mention all registration codes that will be in our session.

Peer review as a selection mechanism is hard to evaluate in terms of its efficiency. Serious efforts to understand its strengths and weaknesses have not yet lead to clear answers. In theory peer review works if the involved parties (editors and referees) conform to a set of requirements, such as love for high quality science, objectiveness, and absence of biases, nepotism, friend and clique networks, selfishness, etc. If these requirements are violated, what is the effect on the selection of high quality work? We study this question with a simple agent based model. In particular we are interested in the effects of rational referees, who might not have any incentive to see high quality work other than their own published or promoted. We find that a small fraction of incorrect (selfish or rational) referees can drastically reduce the quality of the published (accepted) scientific standard. * [18] Peer-Review in a World with Rational Scientists: Toward Selection of the Average, Stefan Thurner, Rudolf Hanel, DOI: SFI-WP 10-09-016, SFI Working Papers [18] http://www.santafe.edu/research/working-papers/abstract/dc59aa3f002f8f6e9c4ee88b858dda5a/ _________________________________________________________________ Line graphs of weighted networks for overlapping communities , Eur. Phys. J. B Abstract: In this paper, we develop the idea to partition the edges of a weighted graph in order to uncover overlapping communities of its nodes. Our approach is based on the construction of different types of weighted line graphs, i.e. graphs whose nodes are the links of the original graph, that encapsulate differently the relations between the edges. Weighted line graphs are argued to provide an alternative, valuable representation of the system's topology, and are shown to have important applications in community detection, as the usual node partition of a line graph naturally leads to an edge partition of the original graph. This identification allows us to use traditional partitioning methods in order to address the long-standing problem of the detection of overlapping communities. We apply it to the analysis of different social and geographical networks. * [20] Line graphs of weighted networks for overlapping communities, T. S. Evans and R. Lambiotte, 2010/09/13, DOI: 10.1140/epjb/e2010-00261-8, Eur. Phys. J. B [20] http://dx.doi.org/10.1140/epjb/e2010-00261-8 -------------------------- Adaptive network models of swarm dynamics , arXiv Abstract: A simple adaptive network model describing recent swarming experiments is introduced. By exploiting an analogy with human decision-making models, its dynamics is captured using a low-dimensional system of equations permitting analytical investigation. The model reproduces several characteristic features of swarms, including: spontaneous symmetry breaking, noise- and density-driven order-disorder transitions that can be of first or second order, intermittency, and metastable configurations displaying memory effects. By considering only minimal components of the swarming dynamics, it highlights the essential elements required to reproduce the observed behavior. * [25] Adaptive network models of swarm dynamics, Cristián Huepe, Gerd Zschaler, Anne-Ly Do, Thilo Gross, 2010/09/13, arXiv:1009.2349 [25] http://arXiv.org/abs/1009.2349 _________________________________________________________________ . Econophysics and Companies: Statistical Life and Death in Complex Business Networks , Cambridge University Press Summary: Econophysics is an emerging interdisciplinary field that takes advantage of the concepts and methods of statistical physics to analyse economic phenomena. This book expands the explanatory scope of econophysics to the real economy by using methods from statistical physics to analyse the success and failure of companies. Using large data sets of companies and income-earners in Japan and Europe, the authors show how these methods allow us to analyse companies, from huge corporations to small firms. They then show how successful this approach is in explaining a wide range of recent findings relating to the dynamics of companies. * [36] Econophysics and Companies: Statistical Life and Death in Complex Business Networks, Hideaki Aoyama et al., 2010/09/15, Cambridge University Press http://www.amazon.com/dp/0521191491?tag=compldiges-20&camp=0&creative=0&linkCode=as1&creativeASIN=0521191491&adid=19V012D6KVD8T1SZSZWC& _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).

Can these drawbacks be counteracted by counting citation weights fractionally instead of using whole numbers in the numerators? (i) Fractional citation counts are normalized in terms of the citing sources and thus would take into account differences in citation behavior among fields of science. (ii) Differences in the resulting distributions can be tested statistically for their significance at different levels of aggregation. (iii) Fractional counting can be generalized to any document set including journals or groups of journals, and thus the significance of differences among both small and large sets can be tested. A list of fractionally counted Impact Factors for 2008 is available online at . The in-between group variance among the thirteen fields of science identified in the U.S. Science and Engineering Indicators is not statistically significant after this normalization. Although citation behavior differs largely between disciplines, the reflection of these differences in fractionally counted citation distributions could not be used as a reliable instrument for the classification. ==================================================================(with Ismael Rafols), Indicators of the Interdisciplinarity of Journals: Diversity, Centrality, and Citations Journal of Informetrics (2011, forthcoming) A citation-based indicator for interdisciplinarity has been missing hitherto among the set of available journal indicators. In this study, we investigate network indicators (betweenness centrality), journal indicators (Shannon entropy, the Gini coefficient), and more recently proposed Rao-Stirling measures for "interdisciplinarity." The latter index combines the statistics of both citation distributions of journals (vector-based) and distances in citation networks among journals (matrix-based). The effects of various normalizations are specified and measured using the matrix of 8,207 journals contained in the Journal Citation Reports of the (Social) Science Citation Index 2008. Betweenness centrality in symmetrical (1-mode) cosine-normalized networks provides an indicator outperforming betweenness in the asymmetrical (2-mode) citation network. Among the vector-based indicators, Shannon entropy performs better than the Gini coefficient, but is sensitive to size. Science and Nature, for example, are indicated at the top of the list. The new diversity measure provides reasonable results when (1 - cosine) is assumed as a measure for the distance, but results using Euclidean distances were difficult to interpret. ________________________________ Loet Leydesdorff Amsterdam School of Communications Research (ASCoR) Kloveniersburgwal 48, 1012 CX Amsterdam.

(ACSPRI) Social Science Methodology Conference is being held in Sydney, 1-3 December 2010. I am convening a session titled "Social Research Using Digital Trace Data". Vast quantities of data are generated daily in social media environments such as blogsites, microblogs (Twitter), social networking sites (e.g. Facebook) and virtual worlds (e.g. Second Life). However, using these data for social science research poses significant methodological challenges. Prospective participants are invited to submit proposals for papers focusing on quantitative and qualitative research methods for digital trace data. Both refereed papers and work in progress presentations that fit into this session are welcome (network science proposals are particularly welcome!). The deadline for submissions is Friday 1st October (this Friday!). Please submit your proposal or paper to: http://www.acspri.org.au/ Please contact me if you would like further information. ------------------------------------- Dr Robert Ackland Fellow and Masters Coordinator, Australian Demographic and Social Research Institute, The Australian National University e-mail: [log in to unmask] homepage: http://adsri.anu.edu.au/people/robert.php project: http://voson.anu.edu.au Information about the Master of Social Research (Social Science of the Internet specialisation): http://adsri.anu.edu.au/study/msr.php ------------------------------------- _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).

The question I'm interested in (which is a little tangential to the main thrust of the study) is how these different sets of responders may be compared, and whether such a comparison can usefully show that they may be considered as a single sample for other analyses or should be considered separately (reducing the sample sizes consequentially).

Subject: Comparing online vs offline responders to egocentric network questionnaire

***** To join INSNA, visit
http://www.insna.org  *****

Hi,

A research project I am part of used a questionnaire to gather
ego-centric data (some details about ego, type and frequency of contact
with alters, and whether ego thought each pair of alters contacted each
other); this was administered both by post and online (and later via
facebook).

The question I'm interested in (which is a little tangential to the main
thrust of the study) is how these different sets of responders may be
compared, and whether such a comparison can usefully show that they may
be considered as a single sample for other analyses or should be
considered separately (reducing the sample sizes consequentially). Are
there some standard papers that have considered this sort of issue that
I should be looking at? I'd be grateful for any pointers...

Thanks,

Matthew

Submissions are welcome about methods, instruments and theories that deal with the collection of data via the Internet or the effects of online applications and technologies on all levels of society. Since 1997 GOR is attended by scientists and professionals who want to stay on top of new developments and best practices for their work in companies and academia. The quality is maintained by a double blind peer reviewing system. This year’s conference especially encourages submissions in: • Online research methodology with a focus on data quality • Applied market research with a focus on the advantages of the online mode and best practice case studies In cooperation with the AG Social Media (http://ag-sm.de/) this year’s conference focus is additionally on: • Social Media Research and Civil Society The program committee invites presenters from the private sector, official statistics, the government and academia. Submission Types A more comprehensive list of possible topics is available from http://www.gor.de. 1. Presentation on Online Research Methodology and Internet Surveys (Track 1) Presentations advance the methodology of research, for example: quantitative or qualitative approaches, online experiments, content analysis, panel quality and panel research, survey design, data collection, coverage, sampling, nonresponse, measurement, adjustment, and weighting, including topics from personality research, voting behavior, etc. 2. Presentation on Applied Online Market Research (Track 2) Presentations cover all types of applied market research, for example: quantitative and qualitative approaches in online and mobile research. Contributions which show how online methodology performs compared to classical approaches in this field (regarding validity, and/or effectivity and efficiency) are welcome. Please note that purely promotional presentations will not be considered for the program. 3. Presentation on Social Media Research and Civil Society (Track 3) Presentations cover all types of social media research, for example: research on and via forums and bulletin boards, blogs and the blogosphere, social networking platforms, microblogging, photo and video communities, social gaming platforms and innovation communities. This contains the discussion on methods (social media monitoring, hybrid media measurement, social media metrics, ethnographical methods, visualizations etc.) as well as theories (intellectual property, privacy, transparency, canon and statutes of professional ethics). Applications and best practices are welcome. Presentations can also advance the topic of social media and civil society, for example: public opinion and social media, participation and the deliberative democracy, social capital. 4. Best Practice Presentation (including the Best Practice Award competition) These presentations will be part of track 2, applied online market research. A strong focus on applied market research based on a real world case study is mandatory. At least one of the authors (preferably the first author) must be a member of a company other than a research agency. The abstract should especially make clear what the results add to existing insights and knowledge about the topic. All submissions in this category are considered for the Best Practice award. This is a prize for the best paper from market research. The award ceremony will take place during the GOR-party. Last year's winners: Dr. Martin Einhorn, Dr. Michael Löffler and Dr. Thomas Klein Reesink, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG ("Media usage patterns of premium customers in the USA, Japan and Germany"). 5. Posters and Late Breaking Research (including the Best Poster award competition) Posters offer the opportunity to present late breaking research, short research findings or discuss work in progress. Posters are presented in a plenary session. They can cover all topics of the GOR. Access to the poster presentations will be possible during the whole conference. Students are encouraged to submit their master and diploma thesis into this category. All submissions in this category are considered for the Poster award. The award ceremony will take place during the farewell plenary session. Last year's winners: Barbara Stiglbauer, Manuela Gamsjäger, Dr. Timo Gnambs, Prof. Dr. Bernad Batinic, Prof. Dr. Herbert Altrichter, Johannes Kepler University Linz ("Developing and Evaluating a Student Online Panel"). 6. Other Contributions: Complete Sessions, Roundtables, Workshops You are invited to suggest a complete session (1 hour = 3 presentations) about a particular topic. Suggestions for complete sessions should be sent to [log in to unmask] until Nov. 1, 2010. The program committee will decide about the acceptance of the session and add accepted sessions to the topic list. Once the new topic was added, abstracts of presentations belonging to that session can be submitted. They will go through the regular review process. A roundtable provides researchers with the opportunity to discuss his or her research question, the methodological approach, and the preliminary findings, with other researchers being in the same situation. Suggestions should be sent to [log in to unmask] until Jan. 31, 2011. The abstract should describe the underlying research question, the method used, the way the discussion will be organized and moderated. It should also outline the open questions which are the basis for the discussion. You are invited to offer a workshop for the conference participants. Suggestions should be sent to [log in to unmask] until Nov. 15, 2011. The abstract should include the following information: Title, duration (either 2.5 or 5 hours), workshop fees, target groups, workshop language, description of the content, goals, necessary prior knowledge of participants, literature that participants need to read prior to participation and/or recommended (additional) literature, information about the instructor and the maximum number of participants. Submission Format GOR is an English speaking international conference and all abstracts must be submitted in English only. The program committee accepts abstracts through the online submission system at http://conftool.gor.de/conftool11/index.php?page=login. The abstract length can be up to 350 words. All abstracts will be reviewed according to the following criteria: the research question, the method and data used, the summary of the results and what it adds to existing insight and knowledge about the topic. Please use the following template for your abstract submission (one paragraph for each criteria and include the keywords in the beginning of each paragraph): Relevance & Research Question: ---your text here--- Methods & Data: ---your text here--- Results: ---your text here--- Added Value: ---your text here--- Incomplete abstracts with respect to the formal criteria above will probably be rejected. In case your research is still work in progress, and therefore final empirical results are not available by the time of submission, you will be asked to hand in your results later. In this case please declare in the comments field during submission, when you will be able to update your abstract. Please note that we cannot accept presentations unless final results are available. Presentations in the tracks last 15 minutes followed by 5 minutes of moderated discussion. Please consider a poster presentation as your submission type for research in progress. Review Process All abstracts are scored in a double blind peer reviewing system by members of the GOR international board according to the criteria mentioned in the submission format. Most submissions receive feedback and comments from 3-4 reviewers each, together with the final decision of acceptance or rejection. Chances of acceptance rise when all four criteria are addressed in the abstract. The program committee is in charge of the final decisions based on the reviews. The committee members for GOR 2011 are: • Dr. Monika Taddicken, DGOF Board and University of Hamburg (Program Chair) • Prof. Dr. Heiner Barz, Heinrich-Heine University of Düsseldorf, Poster Session • Holger Geißler, DGOF Board and YouGovPsychonomics, Track 2, Best Practice • Maren Heltsche, AG Social Media and Ausschnitt Medienbeobachtung, Track 3 • Dr. Lars Kaczmirek, DGOF Board and GESIS, Track 1 • Dr. Benedikt Köhler, AG Social Media and ethority GmbH & Co.

Dear fellow researchers,

 

Can any one direct me to examples of qualitative data displayed visually – especially qualitative data and events over a timeline.  I have qualitative data on how trust develops between parties in a three-way joint venture and I’m looking for ideas to display the data and events. 

 

I’m a big fan of Edward Tufte – and I’m searching for more resources to help me display my qualitative data for my dissertation.
