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

I was going to write my own request, but as it's quite relevant to this topic, I'll ask it here.

I'm interested in in financial networks too, but not in inter-state|country|market or any other macroeconomics sense. I am curious about more microeconomics networks of financial flows: between and withing firms, etc. 

I skimmed through the bibliography here: http://www.financialnetworkanalysis.com/research-database/ but there are mostly macro-networks.

Does anyone have suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
Alexander.

Hi -

Any network research for financial markets needs to examine so-called 'expert networks.' See:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expert_network

"Hedge funds were early adopters, but the use of expert networks is now widespread among all types of institutional investors, including mutual fund advisers, pension funds, banks and private equity firms."

In Oct 2011 expert network fan boy Raj Rajaratnam got 11 years in a federal penitentiary.

The research has mostly been carried out at central banks and motivated from a payment system oversight or financial stability perspective. A good overview article is "Financial Networks and Financial Stability" by the European Central Bank: http://www.ecb.int/pub/fsr/shared/pdf/ivdfinancialstabilityreview201006en.pdf I think the main reason for less research in financial flows between non-bank firms is simply access to data. Below are some papers looking into interbank networks in different countries.

Please come, hack big data with us, present, teach and learn! --------------------------------------------------------------- http://sna-hackathon.tumblr.com/ Social Network Big Data Hackathon at the INSNA Sunbelt Conference March 13-14, 2012 Crowne Plaza Hotel, Redondo Beach, CA Manual collection of social network data is so XXth century! New sources of social network data such as Twitter, Facebook, OpenCongress, CrunchBase, and many others, present data at the scale up to 100s of millions of nodes and billions of edges, with millions of nodes and edges added every hour. In this environment, traditional SNA algorithms and metrics falter due to their high computational complexity and difficulty of parallelization. Big Data approaches such as Map/Reduce, Hive, Pig and Storm, distributed data storage solutions of Hadoop, Redis and MongoDB hold a promise that SNA algorithms can be made to work over web-scale data — but much work is required to make this happen. We are soliciting papers, demos and tutorials on: * Software — open-source or academic-license tools * Big Social Data problems, solutions and war stories * Data warehousing, data manipulation, data wrangling and wrestling * Streaming graph analysis, real-time data analysis, dynamic network analysis * Real-world applications * … any topic relevant to analysis of big, real-time, social network and social stream data Papers from the industry and academia are welcome. We extend a special welcome to companies fueling this movement — if you work at Twitter, Facebook, Bit.ly, Instagr.am, Tumblr, etc., please consider coming to present, teach and learn! Please bring your data and your open-source tools to share! Part 1 of the workshop shall be devoted to practical aspects of dealing with big data — perhaps more of a tutorial to get everyone up to speed. We’ll select practical papers for this section. Part 2 will be in a Hackathon format — we will start by setting up a distributed, real-time cloud computing “playground”, turn on a fast and high-volume data stream, and, at the end of the workshop, leave with meaningful adaptations of SNA metrics and algorithms to real-time, high-volume data. We will encourage formation of impromptu teams and collaborations, especially joint work involving academics and industry. Part 3 — The Red-Eye session — will be devoted to presentations of the hackathon participants and academic and industry “war stories”. Hackathon attendees are expected to be proficient programmers in languages of their choice, and bring high-performance laptops to the workshop. They’ll need all the computing horsepower they can get. We’ll also provide generic Amazon EC2 instances for cloud computing Submission guidelines: * Please submit abstracts (300-500 words) to [log in to unmask] * For software demos, please include a URL to your site or documentation repository or GitHub (Google Code, etc) open-source repository.

I few years back I did some research on what I called inferred networks
based on campaign finance. I looked at volume of contributions from
shared contributors to a given pair of politician and defined the
strength of their social tie by the volume of shared contributions. I'm
curious what other SNA research has been done with this kind of network
-- not necessarily politics and money, but other inferred networks. I'm
also interested in any general guidance and vocabulary for this kind of

Particularly those during adolescence and, to put a finer point on it, how a/the "best" friend has been defined. Fischer's 1982 piece "What do we mean by 'friend'?

I would be very interested in seeing other syllabi for SNA classes taught in an anthropological context. There are lots of anthropologists (or at least recovering anthropologists -- you know who you are!) in INSNA but, other than Alvin Wolfe's fine syllabus, I have not found much online specifically taking on anthropological approaches to social networks. The course that I am designing is fairly heavy on the classic Manchester social anthropologists (e.g., Barnes, Bott, Mitchell, Nadel) but also includes quite a bit of work coming out of the ethological tradition (e.g., Tinbergen, Hinde, Lorenz) -- I am a primatologist by training, after all. I would love to see what others have done, if anything. Thanks in advance...

This will beheld in Bristol between Thursday the 28th and Saturday the 30th of June 2012. Next month we will circulate details of keynotes, introductory and advanced workshops, accommodation and travel suggestions. Extended abstracts can be submitted at: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=uksna2012 We will endeavor to notify of reviewer decisions soon after submissions to facilitate participants travel arrangements. The venue is a restored building of the historic Bristol docks on the floating harbor. Bristol is a vibrant University city, easy to reach from other parts of the UK, 90 miles west of London, with an international airport and frequent connections to the rest of Europe. It is fetted for its association with creative industries, home of BBC nature programmes and a significant concentration of the European aerospace industry. We expect our annual conference in Bristol to match previous ones for academic vigour and opportunities to socialise with colleagues.

I would be very interested in seeing other syllabi for SNA classes taught in an anthropological context. There are lots of anthropologists (or at least recovering anthropologists -- you know who you are!) in INSNA but, other than Alvin Wolfe's fine syllabus, I have not found much online specifically taking on anthropological approaches to social networks. The course that I am designing is fairly heavy on the classic Manchester social anthropologists (e.g., Barnes, Bott, Mitchell, Nadel) but also includes quite a bit of work coming out of the ethological tradition (e.g., Tinbergen, Hinde, Lorenz) -- I am a primatologist by training, after all. I would love to see what others have done, if anything. Thanks in advance...

Hi Jamie

Jeff Johnson and Chris McCarty's syllabus is posted on
http://qualquant.org/methodsmall/scrm/network/

I only have one week on SN in my grad Ethnographic Field Methods class,
but I use a few things that might be relevant:

We read Trotter's piece in Schensul & LeCompte's 1999 Ethnogropher's
Toolkit on Mapping Social Networks etc. It is quite accessible.

Jeff Johnson and David Griffith have a nice new piece in Vaccaro, Smith,
and Aswani's 2010 Environmental Social Sciences: Methods and Research
Design.

I always assign Schweizer, T. (1997) Embeddedness of Ethnographic Cases:
A Social Networks Perspective. Current Anthropology. 38 (5): 739-760.
Great, classic stuff.

Hope that helps -

I am trying to create network images in an EPS format for inclusion into a LaTeX formatted book.  The EPS format is a vector scalable graphic format.  I currently have all my example networks in non-vector scalable formats, such as jpeg or png.  I am sure I am not the first to run across this.  Can anyone tell me what SNA software packages already have this format?  Does R have EPS formats?  If so, how do I display an R network in an EPS format?

Thanks.

Does R > have EPS formats? If so, how do I display an R network in an EPS format? Yes, it has. The simplest way to get the picture is to draw it and use the "Save as" option in the File menu in the GUI. If you need to change different settings of the picture (size, fonts, ...) see help(postscript). The scheme is again simple postscript(file="mypic.eps",...) COMMANDS to draw the picture dev.off() In relation to LaTeX I am usually using PDF files and pdfLaTeX since it supports both types of graphics - PDF for vector graphics, PNG for bitmaps (screen) and JPG for photos; in standard LaTeX you have to convert everything into EPS. Unfortunately, for unknown reasons, most publishers still require EPS figures.

Hi All,

I am a PhD student at Rutgers University and am keen on studying social networks in the context of organizations. I have chosen social networks as a topic for my qualifying exam and want to build a reading list of articles and books that will give me an introduction to the field  and further help me understand the relevance of social networks in the field of management. It will be a great help if you can point me to some good books and possibly some articles that you consider a "must read". 

My other interest areas are psychological contract and strategic human resource management.

Thanks for your help in advance and wish you a happy new year!

As previously noted these are picks by an anthropologist with an interest in the history and philosophy of science. Others might choose differently. Feedback is always welcome. * * _________________________________________________________________ 01. The network takeover , Nature Physics Summary: Reductionism, as a paradigm, is expired, and complexity, as a field, is tired. Data-based mathematical models of complex systems are offering a fresh perspective, rapidly developing into a new discipline: network science. * [1] The network takeover, Albert-László Barabási, 2011/12/22, DOI: 10.1038/nphys2188, Nature Physics 8, 14–16 [1] http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/nphys2188 *For anyone with an interest in the history and philosophy of science, this has to be a must-read. Plus, the author is Barabasi. The writing is sure to be fun.* * * * * * * * *_________________________________________________________________ 02. Between order and chaos , Nature Physics Abstract: What is a pattern? How do we come to recognize patterns never seen before? Quantifying the notion of pattern and formalizing the process of pattern discovery go right to the heart of physical science. Over the past few decades physics’ view of nature’s lack of structure—its unpredictability—underwent a major renovation with the discovery of deterministic chaos, overthrowing two centuries of Laplace’s strict determinism in classical physics. Behind the veil of apparent randomness, though, many processes are highly ordered, following simple rules. Tools adapted from the theories of information and computation have brought physical science to the brink of automatically discovering hidden patterns and quantifying their structural complexity. * [2] Between order and chaos, James Crutchfield, 2011/12/22, DOI: 10.1038/nphys2190, Nature Physics 8, 17–24 [2] http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/nphys2190 *Ditto. The anthropologists among us will also note that pattern recognition, a.k.a., the imposition of order on chaos, is something we think a lot about. What can mathematical tools add to our interpretations?* * * * * _________________________________________________________________ 03. Uninformed Individuals Promote Democratic Consensus in Animal Groups , Science Abstract: Conflicting interests among group members are common when making collective decisions, yet failure to achieve consensus can be costly. Under these circumstances individuals may be susceptible to manipulation by a strongly opinionated, or extremist, minority.

01. The network takeover , Nature Physics

Summary: Reductionism, as a paradigm, is expired, and complexity, as a field, is
tired. Data-based mathematical models of complex systems are offering a fresh
perspective, rapidly developing into a new discipline: network science.

* [1] The network takeover, Albert-László Barabási, 2011/12/22, DOI:
10.1038/nphys2188, Nature Physics 8, 14–16

[1] http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/nphys2188


For anyone with an interest in the history and philosophy of science, this has to be a must-read. Plus, the author is Barabasi. The writing is sure to be fun.

02. Between order and chaos , Nature Physics

Abstract: What is a pattern? How do we come to recognize patterns never seen
before? Quantifying the notion of pattern and formalizing the process of pattern
discovery go right to the heart of physical science. Over the past few decades
physics’ view of nature’s lack of structure—its
unpredictability—underwent a major renovation with the discovery of
deterministic chaos, overthrowing two centuries of Laplace’s strict
determinism in classical physics. Behind the veil of apparent randomness,
though, many processes are highly ordered, following simple rules. Tools adapted
from the theories of information and computation have brought physical science
to the brink of automatically discovering hidden patterns and quantifying their
structural complexity.

* [2] Between order and chaos, James Crutchfield, 2011/12/22, DOI:
10.1038/nphys2190, Nature Physics 8, 17–24

[2] http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/nphys2190


Ditto. The anthropologists among us will also note that pattern recognition, a.k.a., the imposition of order on chaos, is something we think a lot about. What can mathematical tools add to our interpretations?

03. Uninformed Individuals Promote Democratic Consensus in Animal Groups ,
Science

Abstract: Conflicting interests among group members are common when making
collective decisions, yet failure to achieve consensus can be costly. Under
these circumstances individuals may be susceptible to manipulation by a strongly
opinionated, or extremist, minority. It has previously been argued, for humans
and animals, that social groups containing individuals who are uninformed, or
exhibit weak preferences, are particularly vulnerable to such manipulative
agents. Here, we use theory and experiment to demonstrate that, for a wide range
of conditions, a strongly opinionated minority can dictate group choice, but the
presence of uninformed individuals spontaneously inhibits this process,
returning control to the numerical majority. Our results emphasize the role of
uninformed individuals in achieving democratic consensus amid internal group
conflict and informational constraints.

Abstract
A ten year old Information Technology SME was facing an attrition crisis. Regular approaches to stem attrition had proven ineffective. This case study illustrates how an Enterprise Social Network Analysis framework was used to analyse the attrition problem. The framework combined network centrality metrics relevant to attrition-specific information flows and Net Promoter Score as a measure of an employee’s satisfaction. The framework was used to identify key opinion leaders in the enterprise and the nature of their influence. Based on insights derived, a retention and morale improvement action plan was implemented and the attrition problem was quickly and successfully resolved.

I look forward to your comments and feedback on the same - and thoughts on any other approach or  specific (or more advanced) analysis that might have proven fruitful in this context. I do have the raw data to analyze afresh using any different model that you might suggest.

Thanks and warm regards,

Karthik.

I am a PhD student at Rutgers University and am keen on studying social networks in the context of organizations. I have chosen social networks as a topic for my qualifying exam and want to build a reading list of articles and books that will give me an introduction to the field  and further help me understand the relevance of social networks in the field of management.

Thanks for your help in advance and wish you a happy new year!

Hi Sargam,
Rosemary O'Leary from Syracuse University and Naim Kapucu from University of Central Florida have prepared their own network bibliographies. Both are pretty good and would help you a lot. I don't have the URLs in my bookmarks but I am sure you can find them on Google. 
Good luck.

We distinguish between the communication of information in the network space (social network analysis) and the communication of meaning in the vector space. The vector space can be considered a generated as an architecture by the network of relations in the network space; words are then not only related, but also positioned. These positions are expected rather than observed and therefore one can communicate meaning. Knowledge can be generated when these meanings can recursively be communicated and therefore also further codified. Forthcoming in: Manuel Mora, Ovsei Gelman, Annette Steenkamp, and Maresh S. Raisinghani (Eds.), Research Methodologies, Innovations and Philosophies in Systems Engineering and Information Systems, Hershey PA: Information Science Reference, 2012, pp. 322-340, doi: 10.4018/978-1-4666-0179-6.ch16. ________________________________________ Percentile Ranks and the Integrated Impact Indicator (I3) < at http://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1112/1112.6281.pdf > Loet Leydesdorff & Lutz Bornmann We tested Rousseau's (in press) recent proposal to define percentile classes in the case of the Integrated Impact Indicator (I3) so that the largest number in a set always belongs to the highest (100th) percentile rank class. In the case a set of nine uncited papers and one with citation, however, the uncited papers would all be placed in the 90th percentile rank. A lowly-cited document set would thus be advantaged when compared with a highly-cited one. Notwithstanding our reservations, we extended the program for computing I3 in Web-of-Science data (at this http URL) with this option; the quantiles without a correction are now the default. As Rousseau mentions, excellence indicators (e.g., the top-10%) can be considered as special cases of I3: only two percentile rank classes are distinguished for the evaluation. Both excellence and impact indicators can be tested statistically using the z-test for independent proportions. A shorter version of this paper is forthcoming as a Letter to the Editor of the Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology (in press). ** apologies for cross-postings ________________________________________ Loet Leydesdorff Amsterdam School of Communications Research (ASCoR) Kloveniersburgwal 48, 1012 CX Amsterdam.

This is reminiscent of the article that great bibliometrician Howard White, Nancy Nazer (now a bank VP) and I did some years ago on social networks and citation networks in which we found that over time scholars who cited each other tended to become friends, rather than friends tending to cite each other.
