I am analyzing a set of online communication networks and am interested in
exploring their core-periphery structure. I've been doing my network
analysis in R and have been unable to find any packages that implement
identification of core-periphery structure.

This recent paper (Zhang, Xiao, Travis Martin, and Mark EJ Newman.
of core-periphery structure in networks
<>." *Physical
Review E* 91.3 (2015): 032803) appears quite promising in terms of a
scalable approach to identifying core-periphery structure.

Does anyone know if there is a readily available implementation of that
core-periphery identification algorithm (or any other) available in R?

Thank you,
