*Applied Network Science Special Issue on*

*Global Flow of Commodity, Money, Human, and Knowledge* 

The phenomenon of globalization can simultaneously reduce international
economic inequality (e.g., in the case of emerging countries) and worsen
domestic economic inequality (e.g., increase of relative poverty in a
several advanced countries). How can we solve this trade-off between
international and domestic inequalities? On the other hand, it is highly
desirable to avoid the reduction of biological and cultural diversity due
to globalization. What can we do to promote the sustainable evolution and
preservation of local diversities?

Network analysis on global interdependence caused by the flows of
commodity, money, people, and knowledge is indispensable in order to
acquire different perspectives on globalization and to clarify its effects
on isolated communities, which are most vulnerable in terms of equality and
diversity. Consequently, the aim of this special issue is to collect a
series of pioneering works in this interdisciplinary field, at the edge of
natural and social sciences, to provide a landscape of research progresses
and potentials in evidence-based policy making.

Papers of a broad nature – as per the topic to be tackled – on various
aspects of global flow of commodity, money, people, and knowledge are to be
considered as possible contributions for this special issue.

Manuscripts relevant to this special issue include, but are not limited to,
the following:

   - International trade network
   - Global supply-chain network
   - Global resource flows and stocks
   - Global ownership network
   - Global value added network
