An overview of Software Applications for Social Network Analysis


There is a great variety of software tools that has been developed within the last 20 years, as to facilitate and support the qualitative and quantitative analysis of social networks. This paper gives a brief overview of some of the most popular software packages for social network analysis: Pajek, UCINET 6, NetDraw, Gephi, E-Net, KeyPlayer 1, StOCNET and Automap. Pajek has efficient algorithms for the analysis of large networks, while UCINET 6 includes multiple analytical tools highly efficient for exploring and measuring social network structures. NetDraw, nested in UCINET 6, and Gephi allow network visualization. E-Net and KeyPlayer 1 satisfy rather specific and well-oriented purposes: ego-network analysis and network key-player operations (node removal or utilization). StOCNET provides a platform for statistical methods focusing on probabilistic models, while Automap is a text mining tool for analyzing text relational data.

Insight into the Disciplinary Structure of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology

Science (WoS) were renamed and extended to 225 WoS Categories (WCs) (also, a new set of 151 Subject Areas were added, but a higher level of aggregation) ( Leydesdorff, Carley, & Rafols, 2013 ). Thus, we use WCs to detect the disciplinary structure of N&N, further conducting a comparison with conclusions of Porter and Youtie (2009) with the predecessor SCs. Besides analysis from the perspective of the social network analysis of the disciplinary structure of N&N, cluster analysis by employing cliques embedded in Ucinet software has also been conducted in this paper

A methodological approach to the analysis of egocentric social networks in public health research: a practical example

contextualized knowledge is required ( 3 ). In Slovenia, the use of qualitative research in medicine increased significantly in the last years. Studies were performed either with qualitative methods only ( 4 - 9 ), or by means of an integrated approach, together with quantitative measures ( 9 , 11 ). The social network analysis (SNA) is defined as a set of methods used for mapping, measuring and analysing social relationships between people, groups and organisations ( 12 ). It is a research approach uniquely suited to describing, exploring and understanding structural and
