Social network analysis: what bibliometric analysis can tell about the development of scientific directions. Insights from the University of Ljubljana.

Event ended

We invite everyone interested to the Monday open ANR-Lab seminar, where Daria Maltseva, the senior researcher of ANR-Lab, will make a presentation "Social Network Analysis: Bibliographic Network Analysis of the Field and its Evolution". The report will present the main results of the project carried out by Daria together with prof. Vladimir Batagel during her internship at the University of Ljubljana.

We will present the results of our ongoing research on development of the field of Social Network Analysis and its evolution through time using the analysis of bibliographic networks.
We analyze articles from the Web of Science Clarivate Analytics data base containing the key word “social network*”, as well as those published in the main journals in the field. The first part of the data set was collected in 2008 (7,000+ papers). The second part consists of 60,000+ papers published in the last ten years and was collected this summer. The full data set includes 70,000+ publications. From the collected data we constructed the citation network and two-mode networks linking articles with authors, keywords and journals.

In the analysis we are following and improving on the already proven scheme used in earlier studies (Kejžar et al., 2010; Batagelj and Cerinšek, 2013, 2014; Batagelj et al., 2014, 2017, etc.). The approach to temporal network analysis (proposed by Batagelj and Praprotnik, 2016) was applied on large bibliographic networks for the first time.
