SOCIAL NETWORK ANALYSIS
By Prof. Israr QURESHI
Research School of Management
Australian National University
Social network analysis is increasingly being used across various disciplines such as organizational studies, management, business, sociology, political science, communications, etc. Quantitative empirical studies that analyze social, management, and business phenomena, formulate hypotheses, and test them through social network analysis are increasing in social sciences, including management and organization research. In this workshop, we will learn how to apply social network analysis to test various theories. This workshop is geared towards providing foundations in social network methodologies that covers data collection, research ethics, and data analysis. We will use the UCINET software (if time permit).
