Network Measures of Social Capital, 27-36
Borgatti, Stephen P., Jones, Candace, Everett, Martin G.
As Burt (1998) notes, "social capital is fast becoming a core concept in sociology and political science" . But it has mostly been used in a theoretical context ; only a few researchers have had to confront the issue of measurement. Those that have (e.g., Burt 1992 ; Gulati 1999) have almost universally chosen or constructed a single measure of social capital . The focus has been substantive rather than methodological, so none have systematically considered the range of possible measures. In this short paper, we would like to consider which existing network measures might be used to formalize the notion of social capital.
A SOCNET Discussion on the Origins of the Term Social Capital, 37-46
Borgatti, Stephen P.
On January 71, 1997, Michael Lichter posted a message to the SOCNET listserv asking about the origins of the term social capital. This was not the first time social capital had been discussed in that forum, but this particular topic sparked special interest. Although social capital in general continues to be discussed on SOCNET, the discussion about the origins of the term ended on June 11th, 1997. People interested in discussing the topic further should note that a listserv has been set up for that purpose : contact Karl van Meter (bms@ext.iussieu .fr) for information.
Pajek: A Program for Large Network Analysis, 47-58
Batagelj, Vladimir, Mrvar, Andrej
Large networks, having thousands of vertices and lines, can be found in many different areas, e .g : genealogies, flow graphs of programs, molecule, computer networks, transportation networks, social networks, intra/inter organisational networks . . . Many standard network algorithms are very time and space consuming and therefore unsuitable for analysis of such networks. In the article we present some approaches to analysis and visualisation of large networks implemented in program Pajek. Some typical examples are also given.
