***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hello Muhammad, there are several methods to detect hierarchical community structures in networks. However, we couldn't find methods to compare the different obtained hierarchies (for example, by using different detection methods). Therefore, we developed one Hierarchical mutual information for the comparison of hierarchical community structures in complex networks Juan Ignacio Perotti, Claudio Juan Tessone, Guido Caldarelli, Phys. Rev. E 92, 062825 (2015) http://arxiv.org/abs/1508.04388v2 Also, in the introduction of the paper we provide references to different detection methods which can be useful to you as well. I hope this helps.
