Call for papers: Special Issue on: “Social Network Analysis”

Guest Editors:

Social network analysis (SNA) has been gaining momentum for use in many applications, ranging from mapping knowledge flows and gaps in organisations to creating collaborative networks. SNA has developed from the sociology, anthropology and education disciplines, and is a wonderful technique to use for identifying critical knowledge in organisations, relationships between various people within organisations, and to track the flows of knowledge between and within departments. Given this growing importance in SNA, we have decided to dedicate a special issue of IJNVO to SNA.

For more information, subject coverage, notes for intending authors, submission dates and contact information, see the Journal Call for papers website.

SNA is not just for understanding organizations, it can also be used to analyze digital communities (online communities, emails, etc). This is really powerful information that can be used to deploy highly effective marketing campaigns. A number of companies are already operating in this space such as Idiro Technologies (www.idiro.com).

lI think the social network is a great alternative to know people, even to find ourselves because many people overcome their feeling of fears or when they are shy. In fact i like to read everything that help me or catch my attention. I saw a web called costa rica investment opportunities it seem very interesting.
