Hello List,

I am trying to collect a minimum bibliography about ONA. My point is
to understand the state-of-the-art in mapping an organization network,
the techniques used to collect data (preferably indirectly, like mail
databases and so on...) and the most relevant hypotheses that drive
the research in the field.

I have collected these list so far:

As I am very new to this field so I have surely missed some relevant
paper, thus any comment/suggestion is really more than welcome,
