Introduction

As part of my minor dissertation I am really having to up-skill on Social Network Analysis (SNA). This is a collection of the best stuff I have found on the the web to help me learn. This covers collecting data as well as visualising of the data and the calculation of various related descriptive statistics. 

Update April 2021

Tools for Gathering Social Network Survey Data 

  • Showcasing building a SNA Survey in Qualtrics - this is the method i have used




  • Newer tech GENSI with a graphical approach to capturing SNA data, that could possibly be integrated into Qualtrics 

  • Network Canvas - very new but looks promising and free
