structural investigation of supply Networks a Social Network Analysis approachJournal of Operations Management, 2011Co-Authors: Thomas Y Choi, Kevin J DooleyAbstract:
Abstract A system of interconnected buyers and suppliers is better modeled as a Network than as a linear chain. In this paper we demonstrate how to use Social Network Analysis to investigate the structural characteristics of supply Networks. Our theoretical framework relates key Social Network Analysis metrics to supply Network constructs. We apply this framework to the three automotive supply Networks reported in Choi and Hong (2002) . Each of the supply Networks is analyzed in terms of both materials flow and contractual relationships. We compare the Social Network Analysis results with the case-based interpretations in Choi and Hong (2002) and conclude that our framework can both supplement and complement case-based Analysis of supply Networks.

Research on Application Model of Semantic Web-based Social Network AnalysisInformation Sciences, 2011Co-Authors: Yu FanAbstract:
The extensive research of semantic web technology provides a new way of studying on Social Network Analysis methods,which has become the focus of Social Network Analysis area.This paper takes the application of semantic web technology in Social Network Analysis field as its object.First,the article reviews the achievement on the semantic web and Social Network Analysis achieved by both domestic and foreign scholars.Second the paper makes an Analysis on the Social semantic Networks,and proposes an application model Semantic Web-based Social Network Analysis.The paper puts forward technical difficulty in the course of developing of the model as well as its future research field in the end.

Semantic Social Network Analysis2009Co-Authors: Guillaume Erétéo, Fabien Gandon, Olivier Corby, Michel BuffaAbstract:
Social Network Analysis (SNA) has been widely studied since the middle of the 20th century. Research in this field tries to understand and exploit the key features of Social Networks in order to manage their life cycle and predict their evolutions. Detecting strategic positions, roles and communities are among its main concerns. The increasingly popular web 2.0 sites form the largest Social Network. Some researchers apply classical methods from Social Network Analysis (SNA) to such online Networks; others provide models to leverage the semantics of their representation. In this paper, we propose to leverage semantic web technologies to merge and exploit the best features of each of these approaches. Furthermore, we show how to facilitate and enhance the Analysis of online Social Networks, exploiting the power of semantic Social Network Analysis.

Increasingly popular web 2.0 sites are forming huge Social Network. Classical methods from Social Network Analysis (SNA) have been applied to such online Networks. In this paper, we propose leveraging semantic web technologies to merge and exploit the best features of each domain. We present how to facilitate and enhance the Analysis of online Social Networks, exploiting the power of semantic Social Network Analysis.

knowledge building discourse explorer a Social Network Analysis application for knowledge building discourseEducational Technology Research and Development, 2012Co-Authors: Jun Oshima, Ritsuko Oshima, Yoshiaki MatsuzawaAbstract:
In recent studies of learning theories, a new methodology that integrates two prevailing metaphors of learning (acquisition and participation) has been discussed. However, current analytical techniques are insufficient for analyzing how Social knowledge develops through learners' discourse and how individual learners contribute to this development. In this paper, we propose a novel approach to analyzing learning from an integrative perspective and present a Social Network Analysis application that uses learner discourse as input data: Knowledge Building Discourse Explorer (KBDeX). To investigate the utility of this approach, discourse data analyzed in a previous study is re-examined through Social Network Analysis supported by KBDeX. Results suggest that Social Network Analysis can qualitatively and quantitatively support the conclusions from the previous study. In addition, Social Network Analysis can reveal potential points that are pivotal for Social knowledge advancement in groups, and can identify each individual's contribution to this advancement. On the basis of these results, we discuss how Social Network Analysis could be integrated into existing in-depth discourse Analysis.

Social Network Analysis2000Co-Authors: John ScottAbstract:
This paper reports on the development of Social Network Analysis, tracing its origins in classical sociology and its more recent formulation in Social scientific and mathematical work. It is argued that the concept of Social Network provides a powerful model for Social structure, and that a number of important formal methods of Social Network Analysis can be discerned. Social Network Analysis has been used in studies of kinship structure, Social mobility, science citations, contacts among members of deviant groups, corporate power, international trade exploitation, class structure, and many other areas. A review of the formal models proposed in graph theory, multidimensional scaling, and algebraic topology is followed by extended illustrations of Social Network Analysis in the study of community structure and interlocking directorships.
