Dear Marianna and Prabir:

Diana Lucio-Arias & Loet Leydesdorff, Main-path analysis and
path-dependent transitions in HistCite(tm)-based historiograms [1],
_Journal of the American Society for Information Science and
Technology _59(12), 1948-1962, 2008 <pdf-version [2]>; <software [3]>

Best,

  Instead of main path I prefer to use critical path method (CPM).
  The main path method is based on a greedy heuristic while CPM determines
  the path with the largest sum of all its weights.
  Another option is to determine the line island(s) - a subnetwork with
  the strongest links. It usually contains the main path and CPM path.
