Introduction to Network Analysis

Network analysis is being applied in an increasingly number of scientific fields. What is it? What kind of data do you need to do network analysis? What kind of training and tools do you need to proceed? Would your specific research question benefit from a network perspective? This workshop will introduce you to the basics of network analysis – research questions, data, methodological approaches and software tools – particularly from a social scientific perspective, but inclusive of the growing field of network science and complexity. You will leave with resources, readings, and a better idea of how your research work can be enriched with network analysis. You will also learn about the variety of networks courses, talks, and resources at IU.
