Following my (horrific 2 hours of hell) viva, my examiner asked me to develop my chapter on the limitations of quantitative SNA by writing a section on mixed methods SNA. To this end, can anyone direct me to any papers using mixed methodologies, particularly name generator/qualitative combinations?
