Peter, There is a special issue of Social Networks coming out on this topic. I'm sure that issue will have the latest and greatest on the topic. Best of luck on your studies. This is a great field to be in. I would also recommend that you find a way to go to the next Sunbelt conference. I found it extremely helpful for my own research...and it is always a good time.

I would very much appreciate it if any members of the list could refer to me any relevant studies either in: a) The constructs/categorisation of social networks; or b) Physical mapping (spatial geography) of social networks. Thank you in advance.
