Special issue on Networks and Social Psychology

Social Psychology Quarterly

Interest in social network analysis has exploded in the past decade or so, partly triggered by the rapid development in new statistical methods for analyzing social networks and partly fueled by the increasing availability of social network data through popular social media sites. Recent advancements in social network analysis, however, have been largely structural and statistical.

Social network analysis has been a central topic for Social Psychology Quarterly since the journal was still Sociometry when it aspired to focus on studying inter-personal relations. This special issue calls for papers that re-visit this root of social network analysis by studying the social psychological foundations of social networks and the interplay between social networks and social psychological processes. We expect the new research to advance both social network analysis and sociological social psychology in substantive or methodological terms.

Full papers should be submitted at by June 1, 2019. See ‘‘Notice for Contributors’’ for the submission requirements. Please indicate in a cover letter that the paper is submitted for the special issue on “Social Networks and Social Psychology”.
