***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Dear Network Science / SNA community, You are probably aware of the "Coauthorships in network science" network posted on Mark Newman's site (http://www-personal.umich.edu/~mejn/netdata/) as http://www-personal.umich.edu/~mejn/netdata/netscience.zip and many other places. I have found this network to be very useful as a demonstration example when teaching network analytics. It is small enough that most analytic examples can be run as part of a class demonstration, for example for units on random vs. natural graphs, node centralities, degree correlation, community detection, etc. Also it has the bonus that in the process the students learn the names of various important authors. Therefore I have used it as one of several graphs throughout the semester in my course on network science. However, it is now 10 years old. (It also emphasizes physics authors more than sociology.) Does anyone know of an updated version or comparable network that would serve this dual instructive purpose? It would be especially nice to have a version of this network that also includes node attributes (of any relevant sort), as this would extend the range of methods that could be illustrated with the network, as well as the pedagogical utility for learning about the authors.
