Dear all,

We are happy to announce a special issue on the “*Statistical Analysis of
Networks*” to be published by Statistical Methods and Applications (SMAP)
< >, the flagship journal of the
Italian Statistical Society.

SMAP has established itself as a well-known international journal promoting
research in all areas of statistical theory, methodology, and applications.
The aim of this special issue is to collect innovative papers on theory,
methodology, and applications of models and methods for the analysis of
networks. We encourage submissions presenting original works on
statistical, computational, and mathematical approaches with an emphasis on
empirical and substantive aspects, regardless of whether the networks are
observed or unobserved and learnt from data. Innovative applications and
case studies in any scientific fields are welcome, especially related to
novel methodological challenges in the treatment of big data and large

This special issue will bring together contributions from practitioners and
researchers working on different aspects of network analysis, with
methodological interests encompassing graphical models, random graphs,
advanced methods in the treatment of network data, development of
computational and visualization tools, and innovative applications of
network analysis in specific domains.

Guest editors: Michael Schweinberger, Francesco C. Stingo, Maria Prosperina
