So you believe that we should abandon laws and  submit to the will of this  band of  extremists? Does protection of the minority include  gerrymandered  congressional districts that  created this situation in the first place? Most Americans  voted against the Republicans in the House elections.  Respect for the minority cannot mean  that the majority is to be  silenced by extremists.

Hi -

Don't think you need a 'smart sociologist.' Rather, what's needed is a basic civics lesson.

Remember this axiom? "In a democracy, the majority rules."  

Sorry, but the 'majority' sometimes forgets the COMPLETE description of democracy -

"In a democracy the majority rules, at the consent of the minority."

In a democracy the minority is the most important constituency by far!

Fortunately, it is rare that we need to take out the ol' democracy handbook. Well, this is one of those times.

Quite to the contrary, the fear is manifest in POTUS & Reid. They are terrified of minority factions. Instead of protecting and nurturing the minority, the hallmark of flourishing liberal democracy, they behave as textbook demagogues.

If you need a primer on democracy, that French guy with the really long name is excellent.

"If it be admitted that a man possessing absolute power may misuse that power by wronging his adversaries, why should not a majority be liable to the same reproach? Men do not change their characters by uniting with one another; nor does their patience in the presence of obstacles increase with their strength. For my own part, I cannot believe it; the power to do everything, which I should refuse to one of my equals, I will never grant to any number of them."

- Alexis-Charles-Henri Clérel de Tocqueville,

"Tyranny of the Majority,"

Looking at the current US government shutdown... it "appears" that a small group of far-right politicians (a minority in their own Republican Party) have sway over the rest of the party (many of whom do not want the shutdown), but out of fear(apparently) all Republicans are supporting/voting the minority view.

Can a smart sociologist explain what is going on?  Have any SNA studies been done on how a small minority(~10%) controls a majority in a bounded network? Any good papers on fear in networks?

Looking at the current US government shutdown... it "appears" that a small group of far-right politicians (a minority in their own Republican Party) have sway over the rest of the party (many of whom do not want the shutdown), but out of fear(apparently) all Republicans are supporting/voting the minority view.

In Granovetter's well-known (1978) "Threshold Models of Collective Behavior" AJS 83(6): 1420  an influence network may need a very considerable "push" to tip.  He refers to voting as one area of application.  Thus, in a very stable network, the network doesn't tip as long as some minority are unswayed. [albeit oversimplifying]
 
For a similar example, let Di signify a +1/-1 decision by a House member indexed " i " to express support (and vote) for a "clean" (Di = +1) continuing resolution (CR) or express support (and vote) for a "non-clean" CR (Di= -1).  Di =0 represents as-yet undecided or abstention.  Collectively, the decisions Di form a vector.
 
The choice of signs is arbitrary, and the decisions D can be indexed independently on an index "i" or an index "j".
 
In such a tipping point model,     Di = SIGN(Ui + Wij Dj).    [Wij Dj signifies sum over the repeated index j.]
 
Ui is a vector of plus or minus numbers each indicating a combination of constituent pressure, pressure group pressure and motivation by each given House member  to make a decision Di = +1 or Di= -1 respectively.  Wij is an influence weight matrix of plus, minus or zero numbers each representing influence of House members on each other. 
 
Even if the House Speaker or other House leadership persons have relatively high network out-degree, their behavior and decisions are subject to influence by the members too.  Also, non-leader House members who might want to support a clean CR, but face a risk of primary challenge in their districts if they do, may have a net motivation to support a "non-clean" CR instead. [An example of such net motivation is: U25 (motivation of 25th Republican House member in a numbered list of House members) = +2 (personal preference) -3 (risk of primary challenge) results in a total U25= -1 (net motivation to support a "non-clean" CR).]

Fear is an emotion. It’s an affected state of consciousness. Are emotions socially mediated? Contagious? Networks? Are emotions homophilous?  Not sure. Maybe anxious people like other anxious people. Who knows? Lots of people like scary movies. Do joyful people hangout with other joyful people? If any are true then study of any emotion, joy, sorrow, love, etc., would probably indicate some network propagation. Interesting question.

 

Meanwhile, where do emotions, opinions and actions begin and start? ‘Diffusion of Innovation’ is well studied. Does ‘Diffusion of Emotion’ make sense? We all know ‘Diffusion of Opinion’ matters. It’s a huge global media business. Can emotions exhibit herd behaviors? Etc.

 

IMO, emotions are innate properties that are relatively sticky and individual, e.g., people don’t get fearful/scared because someone next to them is scared. Someone gets scared when there is a perceived threat. If the threat comes from an edge, that’s different.

Hi,
 
Fear is an emotion. It’s an affected state of consciousness. Are emotions socially mediated? Contagious? Networks? Are emotions homophilous?

Emotions seem to be at least assortative in social networks. At least as far as we were able to measure:

Fear is an emotion. It’s an affected state of consciousness. Are emotions socially mediated? Contagious? Networks? Are emotions homophilous?  Not sure. Maybe anxious people like other anxious people. Who knows? Lots of people like scary movies. Do joyful people hangout with other joyful people? If any are true then study of any emotion, joy, sorrow, love, etc., would probably indicate some network propagation. Interesting question.

White argues in Network Switchings and Bayesian Forks: Reconstructing the Social and Behavioral Sciences: "Ties of a type are both network and domain, both relation and talk. It is talk that switches, not tie—and certainly not persons, they being deposits and byproducts of the process. The substance of a type of tie lies in what reflexive accountings are accepted in that network-domain as warranties, and in what are the presuppositions and entailments. These can all together be approximated as a particular set of accepted stories. Thus, within a particular micro-historical setting, the tie is also a boundary, which comes as the envelope of a joint selection process across story set." If this is the case and furthermore there is access to the textual (or audio-visual, video etc.) content of ties-stories in a social network, then one could use various machine-learning techniques to do something like sentiment (or opinion) analysis, in which sentiments like fear (for example) might arise among the harvested parameters under consideration. However, in a literal sense, what Harrison White insinuates is the importance of edge(tie)-based attributes over actor-based ones. This could mean that one might need to elaborate a sort of assortativity analysis for edge attributes, instead of vertex attributes (already studied extensively). In particular, this would necessitate a comprehensive analysis of multiplexity in social networks, not so much from the point of view of aggregating all the existing multirelational (sub)patterns but mainly from the angle of their (inter)correlations and adjacencies. Note that, if ties are directed, then there are multiple ways to define line correlations and adjacencies, which result to different ways of obtaining useful network aggregations (such as community partitions etc.). --Moses On Thu, Oct 3, 2013 at 8:57 PM, Stephen D.

Todeva, E. (2006) Business Networks: Strategy and Structure, New York: Taylor & Francis. I am not sure that fear has been the driver of the spread of influence (antecedent), but it is definitely an outcome from the effect of this influence (consequence).

Besides Mark Kibanov's cite to Michael Kearns, do any other articles specifically directed to social network modeling of this type of political situation come to mind to SOCNET participants? In Granovetter's well-known (1978) "Threshold Models of Collective Behavior" AJS 83(6): 1420 an influence network may need a very considerable "push" to tip.

Di =0 represents as-yet undecided or abstention. Collectively, the decisions Di form a vector.

For the purpose of modelling I have developed two conceptual frameworks that can explain with some details the spread of influence in business networks – one is called the behavioural system in business networks (Fig. 3.1), looking at reactive and strategic behaviour, including exchange of incentives (i.e. favour-for-favour), or manipulating the external and internal environment); and the other is called $B!F(Brelational attributes$B!G(B (Fig. 4.4), including shared preferences and incentives, affection, trust, or the perceived value of a relationship.

Todeva, E. (2006) Business Networks: Strategy and Structure, New York: Taylor & Francis.

 

I am not sure that fear has been the driver of the spread of influence (antecedent), but it is definitely an outcome from the effect of this influence (consequence).

Subject: Fear in Networks: Tipping Point Political Influence Threshold Models

 

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

 

One could check social network and political science literature for tipping point political influence models of this type of minority influence.  Besides Mark Kibanov's cite to Michael Kearns, do any other articles specifically directed to social network modeling of this type of political situation come to mind to SOCNET participants? 

 

In Granovetter's well-known (1978) "Threshold Models of Collective Behavior" AJS 83(6): 1420  an influence network may need a very considerable "push" to tip.  He refers to voting as one area of application.  Thus, in a very stable network, the network doesn't tip as long as some minority are unswayed. [albeit oversimplifying]

 

For a similar example, let Di signify a +1/-1 decision by a House member indexed " i " to express support (and vote) for a "clean" (Di = +1) continuing resolution (CR) or express support (and vote) for a "non-clean" CR (Di= -1).  Di =0 represents as-yet undecided or abstention.  Collectively, the decisions Di form a vector.

 

The choice of signs is arbitrary, and the decisions D can be indexed independently on an index "i" or an index "j".

 

In such a tipping point model,     Di = SIGN(Ui + Wij Dj).    [Wij Dj signifies sum over the repeated index j.]

 

Ui is a vector of plus or minus numbers each indicating a combination of constituent pressure, pressure group pressure and motivation by each given House member  to make a decision Di = +1 or Di= -1 respectively.  Wij is an influence weight matrix of plus, minus or zero numbers each representing influence of House members on each other. 

 

Even if the House Speaker or other House leadership persons have relatively high network out-degree, their behavior and decisions are subject to influence by the members too.  Also, non-leader House members who might want to support a clean CR, but face a risk of primary challenge in their districts if they do, may have a net motivation to support a "non-clean" CR instead. [An example of such net motivation is: U25 (motivation of 25th Republican House member in a numbered list of House members) = +2 (personal preference) -3 (risk of primary challenge) results in a total U25= -1 (net motivation to support a "non-clean" CR).]  

 

To the extent that House members might cluster in their numerical situations from a modeling point of view, the model could probably be boiled down from hundreds of agents down to perhaps ten or fewer groups of them as nodes, while retaining the form of the model.  Note also, of course, that the initial state of the network matters--passing a CR of either type takes actual action by the House, unlike mandatory expenditures that go along on "autopilot" unless action is taken to terminate them.

 

One can specify what "fear" is going to correspond to, numerically.  For example, one way would define a kind of agent-specific fear, tension or dissonance "Fear1" as the personal preference magnitude when total Ui +SumWijDj has a sign opposite to the personal preference, else zero. 

 

A tipping point model with the right parameters can describe a network in which a minority can control a majority. We see this in repressive regime situations around the world.  The methodological footwork to parameterize such a model is probably comparable in difficulty to challenges that political scientists deal with already in their other studies.  One could consider more elaborate versions of this type of model, but would need to justify departing from parsimony.

For emotional contagion, also add:

Hatfield, E., Cacioppo, J. L. & Rapson, R. L. (1993). Emotional contagion. 
Current Directions in Psychological Sciences, 2, 96-99. 


De Waal finds evidence of emotional contagion in primates as well:

de Waal, Frans (1996). Good Natured. Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press.


What I wonder is how can you tell when it is emotional contagion or cost/benefit analysis (cognitive) coursing through the network?

This whole thread (emotion contagion, tipping points) reminds me of
fractal percolation models in physics. Are they being applied in
social networks models ?

This European conference replaces the annual ASNA and UKSNA conference in 2014, having received a regional conference endorsement by INSNA. In this occasion the EUSN will pay special attention to Latin American researchers on social networks in order to foster the creation of a regional conference also in Latin America. Save these dates, please. We are looking forward hosting all of you at the UAB. Hasta pronto!

Great!!! Congratulations Jose Luis and Miranda. It's an important initiative in spanish speaking countries. This conference will be useful to integrate our job in latin america to european and global discussions about social networks analysis.

We expect helping you in Colombia and other countries in latinamerica near to "Redes".

Saludos,

Gabriel Velez

Asunto: [SOCNET] New European conference series - save the date.

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

Dear all,

We are pleased to announce the *1st European Conference on Social Networks
(EUSN)* that will be held at the Faculty of Arts, Autonomous University of
Barcelona (UAB) on *June 30-July 4, 2014*.

This European conference replaces the annual ASNA and UKSNA conference in
2014, having received a regional conference endorsement by INSNA.

In this occasion the EUSN will pay special attention to Latin American
researchers on social networks in order to foster the creation of a regional
conference also in Latin America.

Save these dates, please. We are looking forward hosting all of you at the
UAB.

Hasta pronto!

José Luis Molina - Miranda Lubbers

I think it's important to emphasize that we are talking about the broader idea of "changing opinion" in a network, rather than the more specific concept of "fear". You might find more supporting literature if you re-frame it this way.

A number of lobbying groups and corporate interests have been involved for months and have connections that are multi-leveled and rather complex. Money, rather than "fear" as the mode of this network, would probably offer the most explanatory power.

Valdis raised an important question of minority/majority relations in a “democracy”  with specific reference to the political situation in the United States. One respondent did mention gerrymandering, which does indeed operate strongly in those areas where the Tea Party representatives get elected. But  if we are going to look at this as a network problem then we must recognize that over the past century business corporations have come more and more to be seen as persons, way beyond what was contemplated previously.  Since the 2010 Supreme Court decision held that corporate  advertising is speech that is protected by the constitution,  corporations interested in politics have much more power than they had before, and they have used it in the very situations SOCNET is talking about .

I have been arguing for years that multinational corporations have to be treated as nodes in international networks. Similarly, in local communities, corporations are best understood as nodes in community networks. Now, especially because of the US Supreme Court, corporations are best understood as important actors in the American national system.  For more see my article “Anthropologist view of social network analysis and data mining” in the journal SOCIAL NETWORK ANALYSIS AND DATA MINING < http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs13278-010-0014-4/fulltext.html#Sec10>

I think it's important to emphasize that we are talking about the broader idea of "changing opinion" in a network, rather than the more specific concept of "fear". You might find more supporting literature if you re-frame it this way.

Hope, it brings you further.

Looking at the current US government shutdown... it "appears" that a small group of far-right politicians (a minority in their own Republican Party) have sway over the rest of the party (many of whom do not want the shutdown), but out of fear(apparently) all Republicans are supporting/voting the minority view.

Can a smart sociologist explain what is going on?  Have any SNA studies been done on how a small minority(~10%) controls a majority in a bounded network? Any good papers on fear in networks?

While modern network analysis offers many sophisticated techniques, most were developed for extremely large networks, not for the smaller networks most commonly found in non-human social systems. Furthermore, biological systems change through time, and many questions of fundamental importance involve network dynamics. Thus, there is currently a need for modern network analysis techniques that are specific to these systems and issues. This workshop will explore problems and opportunities raised by small (tens to hundreds of individuals) social networks as they develop over time, with special focus on three issues: 1) how temporal dynamics affect network function and emergent properties, 2) the response of the network to perturbations such as births, deaths, immigration and emigration from the social group, 3) the tension between a focus on network structure (e.g., importance of roles and network centrality) and process (e.g., flow of information, disease transmission). The workshop will bring together empiricists interested in a diversity of animal social groups (ants, fish, birds, mammals) and quantitative scientists (network scientists, mathematicians, computer scientists, physicists) interested in the special problems posed by the dynamics of small social networks. *Location: *NIMBioS at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville *Co-Organizers:* David B.

They are mapped into time series. Their corresponding shuffled versions are used for obtaining a ''base line''. Two different one-dimensional time series are investigated: (i) one based on word lengths (LTS), (ii) the other on word frequencies (FTS). It is shown that the generalized Hurst exponent and the derived multifractal functions of the original and translated texts show marked differences. The original "texts" have some skewed structure, - in contrast to a mere parabola for shuffled texts. Moreover, the esperanto text has more extreme values.

Theoretical models suggest that short-term collective behavior and long-term cultural diversity are mutually excluding, since they require very different levels of social influence. The latter jointly depends on two factors: the topology of the underlying social network and the overlap between individuals in multidimensional cultural space. However, while the empirical properties of social networks are intensively studied, little is known about the large-scale organization of real societies in cultural space, so that random input specifications are necessarily used in models. Here we use a large dataset to perform a high-dimensional analysis of the scientific beliefs of thousands of Europeans. We find that interopinion correlations determine a nontrivial ultrametric hierarchy of individuals in cultural space. When empirical data are used as inputs in models, ultrametricity has strong and counterintuitive effects. On short timescales, it facilitates a symmetry-breaking phase transition triggering coordinated social behavior. On long timescales, it suppresses cultural convergence by restricting it within disjoint groups. Moreover, ultrametricity implies that these results are surprisingly robust to modifications of the dynamical rules considered. Thus the empirical distribution of individuals in cultural space appears to systematically optimize the coexistence of short-term collective behavior and long-term cultural diversity, which can be realized simultaneously for the same moderate level of mutual influence in a diverse range of online and offline settings. 14:00---15:00 Session 2 -- Big Data 15:00---15:15 Coffee 15:15---16:00 Keynote: Stefan Dormans TBA 16:00---16:15 Discussion & closing 16:15---17:00 Drinks _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).

               Reconciling long-term cultural diversity and short-term collective social behavior

Abstract: An outstanding open problem is whether collective social phenomena occurring over short timescales can systematically reduce cultural heterogeneity in the long run, and whether offline and online human interactions contribute differently to the process. Theoretical models suggest that short-term collective behavior and long-term cultural diversity are mutually excluding, since they require very different levels of social influence. The latter jointly depends on two factors: the topology of the underlying social network and the overlap between individuals in multidimensional cultural space. However, while the empirical properties of social networks are intensively studied, little is known about the large-scale organization of real societies in cultural space, so that random input specifications are necessarily used in models. Here we use a large dataset to perform a high-dimensional analysis of the scientific beliefs of thousands of Europeans. We find that interopinion correlations determine a nontrivial ultrametric hierarchy of individuals in cultural space. When empirical data are used as inputs in models, ultrametricity has strong and counterintuitive effects. On short timescales, it facilitates a symmetry-breaking phase transition triggering coordinated social behavior. On long timescales, it suppresses cultural convergence by restricting it within disjoint groups. Moreover, ultrametricity implies that these results are surprisingly robust to modifications of the dynamical rules considered. Thus the empirical distribution of individuals in cultural space appears to systematically optimize the coexistence of short-term collective behavior and long-term cultural diversity, which can be realized simultaneously for the same moderate level of mutual influence in a diverse range of online and offline settings.

I have a large network for which I think an edge bundling layout might be useful, but I can't seem to find any of these layouts implemented in the standard visualization software (e.g. Vizone, Gephi, etc.).  There is discussion of one such layout in Gephi here (https://gephi.org/2012/gsoc-force-directed-edge-bundling/), but it doesn't appear to be available yet.

If you know of any visualization software that offers an edge bundling layout, I'd appreciate any suggestions.

The somewhat more extensive answer is: There are two main R packages that provide facilities to store, manipulate and visualize network data. These are "network" and 'igraph". Technically speaking each package provides a specialized class of R data objects for storing network data plus additional functions to manipulate and visualize them. Each package has its relative strengths and weaknesses, but by and large you can do most basic network data operations and visualizations in both packages equally easily. Moreover, you can convert network data objects from "network" to "igraph" or vice versa with functions from the "intergraph" package. Calculating basic network statistics (degree, centrality, etc.) is possible for both types of objects. For "igraph" objects, functions for these purposes are contained in "igraph" itself. For "network" objects, most of the classical SNA routines are contained in the "sna" package. Community detection algorithms (e.g. Newman-Girvan) are available only in the "igraph" package. "Fancier things", especially statistical models for networks (ERGMs etc.) are available in various packages that were build around the "network" package and jointly constitute the 'statnet' suite (http://www.statnet.org/). There is also "tnet" package with some more routines for among other things two-mode networks, which borrows from both "network" and "igraph" world. And of course there is RSiena for estimating actor-oriented models of network dynamics which is not related either "network" or "igraph". As for matrix algebra, it is obviously available within R itself. My recommendation would be to have a look at both "igraph" and "network" and pick the one which seems easier to you as far as manipulating and visualizing networks is concerned. Have a look at the documentation of these packages (e.g. on http://www.rdocumentation.org/) and at tutorials on e.g.: - statnet website (http://www.statnet.org/) - igraph homepage (http://igraph.sourceforge.net/) - R labs by McFarland et al (http://sna.stanford.edu/rlabs.php) - Slides and scripts to my Sunbelt workshop (http://www.bojanorama.pl/snar:start) It does not really matter whether you pick "igraph" or "network" as you can aways convert your network to the other class with 'asIgraph' or 'asNetwork' functions from "intergraph" package and take advantage of the functions available in the "other world". I hope this helps good luck! ~Michal On Wed, Oct 9, 2013 at 1:19 AM, Jesse Sayles <[log in to unmask]> wrote: > ***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** > Hi SOCNET, > > I am curious if anyone can recommend one R package over another.

Form subgraphs. Bundle them separately. Merge edge coordinates into a single
layout. Voilà !

Incidentally, I was wondering, is there any algorithm for an edge
bundling of a multiplex network? Any ideas how to visualize bundled
multi-edges? Of course, by bundling separately edges of the same
"color" could do the job but the problem would arise if the number of
"colors" is very large. (For instance, think of Twitter hashtags.)

Tulip (http://tulip.labri.fr/TulipDrupal/) has a force directed edge

bundling layout implementation. Although I check every five minutes to see

if Gephi has implemented theirs yet.

I have a large network for which I think an edge bundling layout might be

useful, but I can't seem to find any of these layouts implemented in the

standard visualization software (e.g. Vizone, Gephi, etc.).  There is

discussion of one such layout in Gephi here

(https://gephi.org/2012/gsoc-force-directed-edge-bundling/), but it doesn't

appear to be available yet.


If you know of any visualization software that offers an edge bundling

layout, I'd appreciate any suggestions.


Thanks,

Zachary

To correct one minor point in Michal's otherwise excellent review:

Although it is true that statnet does not specifically have canned Newman-Girvan algorithms, it does have tools that I would consider community detection algorithms in the latentnet package.  Igraph may have a greater breadth of options of such tools - I'm not very familiar with igraph.  But statnet definitely does have tools that can be used to identify clusters of nodes in a network which are more likely to have relations within the cluster than across clusters.

Hi Jesse,

The short answer is: there is no single R package that will do all the
things that you mention.

The somewhat more extensive answer is:

There are two main R packages that provide facilities to store,
manipulate and visualize network data. These are "network" and
'igraph". Technically speaking each package provides a specialized
class of R data objects for storing network data plus additional
functions to manipulate and visualize them. Each package has its
relative strengths and weaknesses, but by and large you can do most
basic network data operations and visualizations in both packages
equally easily. Moreover, you can convert network data objects from
"network" to "igraph" or vice versa with functions from the
"intergraph" package.

Calculating basic network statistics (degree, centrality, etc.) is
possible for both types of objects. For "igraph" objects, functions
for these purposes are contained in "igraph" itself. For "network"
objects, most of the classical SNA routines are contained in the "sna"
package.

Community detection algorithms (e.g. Newman-Girvan) are available only
in the "igraph" package.

"Fancier things", especially statistical models for networks (ERGMs
etc.) are available in various packages that were build around the
"network" package and jointly constitute the 'statnet' suite
(http://www.statnet.org/). There is also "tnet" package with some more
routines for among other things two-mode networks, which borrows from
both "network" and "igraph" world. And of course there is RSiena for
estimating actor-oriented models of network dynamics which is not
related either "network" or "igraph".

As for matrix algebra, it is obviously available within R itself.


My recommendation would be to have a look at both "igraph" and
"network" and pick the one which seems easier to you as far as
manipulating and visualizing networks is concerned. Have a look at the
documentation of these packages (e.g. on
http://www.rdocumentation.org/) and at tutorials on e.g.:
- statnet website (http://www.statnet.org/)
- igraph homepage (http://igraph.sourceforge.net/)
- R labs by McFarland et al (http://sna.stanford.edu/rlabs.php)
- Slides and scripts to my Sunbelt workshop
(http://www.bojanorama.pl/snar:start)

It does not really matter whether you pick "igraph" or "network" as
you can aways convert your network to the other class with 'asIgraph'
or 'asNetwork' functions from "intergraph" package and take advantage
of the functions available in the "other world".


I hope this helps
good luck!

~Michal

Another factor is the audience... are they network thinkers/perceivers?  We SOCNET members can probably see more in a network diagram than the common person... keep it simple.  We show various simple slices of the whole plus the one complex overall picture.

Half a million data at firm level in 2011 was obtained from the Orbis database (of Bureau Van Dijk). The firm level data were aggregated at the levels of eight Federal Districts, the regional level of 83 Federal Subjects, and the single level of the Russian Federation. Not surprisingly, the knowledge base of the economy is concentrated in the Moscow region (22.8%); St. Petersburg follows with 4.0%. Only 0.4% of the firms are classified as high-tech; and 2.7% as medium-tech manufacturing (NACE, Rev. 2). Except in Moscow itself, high-tech manufacturing does not add synergy to any other unit at any of the various levels of geographical granularity; it disturbs instead the regional coordination even in the region surrounding Moscow ("Moscow Oblast"). In the case of medium-tech manufacturing, there is also synergy in St. Petersburg. Knowledge-intensive services (KIS; including laboratories) contribute 12.8% to the economy in terms of establishments and contribute in all Federal Districts (except the North-Caucasian Federal District) to the synergy, but only in 30 of the 83 (36.1%) Federal Subjects. The synergy in KIS is concentrated in centers of administration. Different from Western-European countries, the knowledge-intensive services (which are often state-affiliated) thus provide a backbone to an emerging knowledge-based economy at the level of Federal Districts, but the economy is otherwise not knowledge-based (except for the Moscow region).

Guerrero-Bote Using Scopus data, we construct a global map of science based on aggregated journal-journal citations from 1996-2012 (N of journals = 20,554). This base map enables users to overlay downloads from Scopus interactively. Using a single year (e.g., 2012), results can be compared with mappings based on the Journal Citation Reports at the Web-of-Science (N = 10,936). The Scopus maps are richer at both the local and global levels because of their greater coverage, including, for example, the arts and humanities. The base maps can be interactively overlaid with journal distributions in sets downloaded from Scopus, for example, for the purpose of portfolio analysis. Rao-Stirling diversity can be used as a measure of interdisciplinarity in the sets under study. Maps at the global and the local level, however, can be very different because of the different levels of aggregation involved. Two journals, for example, can both belong to the humanities in the global map, but participate in different specialty structures locally. The base map and interactive tools are available online (with instructions) at http://www.leydesdorff.net/scopus_ovl/   http://arxiv.org/abs/1310.4966 ** apologies for cross-postings _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).
