Repository Details

A curated list of awesome network analysis resources.

Awesome Network Analysis Awesome DOI

An awesome list of resources to construct, analyze and visualize network data.

Inspired by Awesome Deep Learning, Awesome Math and others. Started in 2016, and irregularly updated since then.

Adamic and Glance’s network of political blogs, 2004.

Network of U.S. political blogs by Adamic and Glance (2004) (preprint).

Journals

Journals that are not fully open-access are marked as “gated”. Please also note that some of the publishers listed below are deeply hurting scientific publishing.

Professional Groups

Research Groups (USA)

Network-focused research centers, (reading) groups, institutes, labs – you name it – based in the USA.

Research Groups (Other)

Network-focused research centers, (reading) groups, institutes, labs – you name it – based outside of the USA.

Review Articles

Archeological and Historical Networks

See also the bibliographies by Claire Lemercier and Claire Zalc (section on ‘études structurales’), by the Historical Network Research Group, and by Tom Brughmans.

Bibliographic, Citation and Semantic Networks

Biological, Ecological and Disease Networks

Complex and Multilayer Networks

Ethics of Network Analysis

Network Modeling

Network Visualization

Social, Economic and Political Networks

See also the bibliographies by Eszter Hargittai, by Pierre François and by Pierre Mercklé.

Selected Papers

A voluntarily short list of applied, epistemological and methodological articles, many of which have become classic readings in network analysis courses. Intended for highly motivated social science students with little to no prior exposure to network analysis.

Software

For a hint of why this section of the list might be useful to some, see Mark Round’s Map of Data Formats and Software Tools (2009).
Several links in this section come from the NetWiki Shared Code page, from the Cambridge Networks Network List of Resources for Complex Network Analysis, and from the Software for Social Network Analysis page by Mark Huisman and Marijtje A.J. van Duijn. For a recent academic review on the subject, see the Social Network Algorithms and Software entry of the International Encyclopedia of Social and Behavioral Sciences, 2nd edition (2015).
See also the Social Network Analysis Project Survey (blog post), an earlier attempt to chart social network analysis tools that links to many commercial platforms not included in this list, such as Detective.io. The Wikipedia English entry on Social Network Analysis Software also links to many commercial that are often very expensive, outdated, and far from being awesome by any reasonable standard.
Software-centric tutorials are listed below their program of choice: other tutorials are listed in the next section.

Algorithms

Network placement and community detection algorithms that do not fit in any of the next subsections.
See also the Awesome Algorithms and Awesome Algorithm Visualization lists for more algorithmic awesomess.

C / C++
