Subject: Case Study Unit of Analysis = A Social Network?
***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org *****
In a SNA-based case study, would it be normal/common/acceptable to say that your unit of analysis is a social network? Does anyone know of a study I can cite that does this? Ideally I'd like to find a paper that explicitly states that the study's unit of analysis was a social network, but even if it's implied, that would be okay.
